Overview Getting There Loved it best yet. Genesee Park is 20 miles west of Denver on I-70 to Exit 254 (Genesee Park Exit) or Exit 253 (Chief Hosa Exit). Reviews Photos Tracks Maxwell Boltinghouse (94) 26 days ago N/A: 3 Completed 1 Reviews Great trail. Be careful however to not walk down what I think was a deer trail and wind up south of the trail near the road. Other than that its a great hike. I completed this near the beginning of Nov and there were a couple of brook crossing that were tricky with a pack and a dog. I would recommend doing this in the early morning as it was getting fairly busy when I finished around noon Christine Stocking 2 months ago N/A: 1 Completed 1 Reviews Great trail. We did the Chavez / BB trail loop, lots of damage from the rains. The creek was running pretty good and we encountered at least 7 creek crossings. Glad we brought hiking poles because it helped crossing the creek. Bridges and parts of the trail are washed out so be careful! Sarah Busche (125) 2 months ago N/A: 10 Completed 4 Reviews We stayed on Beaver brook trail for 4-5 miles then headed back. Good work out. Our golden retriever was pretty tired by the end. We did not do Chavez b/c the map at start of trail said closed. Maybe b/c of all the rain we had and it runs by a good flowing stream? next time we will try the Chavez loop. Kristen Thomson (1398) 3 months ago N/A: 25 Completed 4 Reviews I did Chavez to Beaver Brook and glad I went that way. There are some narrow parts of Beaver Brook on this loop with steep drop offs. I'd rather climb up those than navigate down them. I loved this hike. The up was tough and I was ready for it to end, but the hike was gorgeous and well shaded for a summer hike. There was still plenty of water in the river at the end of August and we all loved playing on the rocks. Alley Kasney (261) 4 months ago N/A: 8 Completed 8 Reviews I've done this hike 3 times this summer! I've gone up and down different ways each time to keep it interesting. The water was so high in May and is now barely anything, but it's enough to please my dog. Nice and close to Denver and almost all of it is shaded. Robert Boswell (329) 4 months ago N/A: 10 Completed 1 Reviews Good easy hike down the Beaver Brook and a harder steep hike back up the Chavez Trail Alicia Conover (60) 4 months ago N/A: 2 Completed 1 Reviews Great hike! Did this with my husband and our 2 dogs who loved it. It has great views and runs along a nice little babbling brook. Towards the end it does become a steep climb up but it was worth it! It ended up being almost 4.5 miles according to my pedometer, though. Kala Gutierrez (82) 4 months ago N/A: 6 Completed 1 Reviews Great hike. Beautiful water features, rock croppings, and close into town. I usually don't like hikes that start with the descent but this one is great. Dave Fluegge (159) 5 months ago N/A: 7 Completed 1 Reviews Fun trail, not too difficult. My dog has fun, but please put your dog on leash when people are coming. I realize it's leash all the time, but if you keep an eye on it. My pup got bit by a dog that wasn't being watched by its owners (luckily I grabbed the dog before it could do damage). Lalo Angulo (104) 5 months ago N/A: 7 Completed 2 Reviews I would recommend going "backwards"... the questionable terrain on the reviews would be easier to navigate going up in my opinion. The hike was fun and there was a lot of cool wildflowers but, it was too much effort for a little brook.
