About

he historic and very popular Beaver Brook Trail, originally constructed by CMC in 1917, begins just north of Genesee and winds northeast to Windy Saddle on Lookout Mountain, near Golden. While it's location is conveniently located near the Denver-metro area, the trail offers hikers a remote back-country feel.

The trail has five stream crossings, which were damaged during the September 2013 flood. WRV will begin a two year process to conduct maintenance on the trail and repair the five bridges. This year, volunteers will focus on reconstructing one or two of the bridges. We'll hike in about a mile, help move log stringers into place, and then attach decking to the logs. Join us for a fun day working near a beautiful creek!
