Beyers Lakes Trail is a more difficult 6.25 mile trail at an elevation of 5,500 feet. From Meadow Lake, a four-wheel-drive trail proceeds west toward Baltimore Lake. At a point about 1.5 miles west of Meadow Lake the four-wheel-drive trail ends, with a good view of French Lake to the north. A foot trail descends across a rocky hillside toward Baltimore Lake, which lies in a heavily timbered basin. There are a number of good campsites and fishing is generally very good.
The trail leaves Baltimore Lakes and climbs over a saddle for a gentle descent into the Beyers Lakes area, a group of four lakes in a rocky landscape with a border of fir trees. From this point the trail continues west to its junction with the Grouse Ridge Trail.
