Paulie's Plunge / Stone Creek #2349


This 2.2 mile trail connects Eagle Drive and the Beaver Creek Ski Resort. Hikers and snowshoers generally hike up from Eagle Drive and mountain bikers generally ride from Beaver Creek down to Eagle Drive. 

From the trailhead at Eagle Drive, the trail is very flat through mixed aspen and conifer forest for the first 0.75 miles until a fork. The trail right leads down onto the golf course. Turn left here and remember this intersection for your return trip so you don’t end up down on the golf course. The trail now climbs along the creek through forest toward Beaver Creek Ski Resort.

This trail is closed annually from May 15-June 20 for elk calving.
