Embark on your excursion along the Buffalo Bill and Beaver Brook Trail from the trailhead. Here there will likely be crowds, but as you travel further into the wilderness the crowds will thin, so don’t let that discourage you! Track the Buffalo Bill Trail south and at the first intersection, take the rightmost Lookout Mountain Trail. This path will guide you below the treeline and at the next junction turn left, and you will be diverted onto the Beaver Brook Trail. This route will intersect with multiple streams and pass a cascading waterfall. The route will weave you between meadowlands and forestlands before delivering you to another intersection.
At this point, keep left before merging right onto the Gudy Gaskill Trail. This route will loop you through the plains which expose views of the Clear Creek Canyon. Soon the circuit will guide you back to the junction with the Beaver Brook Trail. From here, simply retrace your footing back along the path all the way back to the trailhead.
