Located near Avon, Beaver Lakes is a roughly 4.8 mile moderate hike. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from June until October. So now is a great time for YOU to get out there and check it out for yourself! Also, dogs are welcome but encouraged to stay on leash!

The water is refreshing and if you’re lucky, you may just see some wildlife grazing!
