The Roosevelt National Forest is a national forest located in north central Colorado. It is contiguous with the Colorado State Forest as well as the Arapaho National Forest. The forest is administered jointly with the Arapaho National Forest and the Pawnee National Grassland from offices in Fort Collins.
The trail was one of the most diverse and rewarding I've ever been on, and the big payoff is the actual lake, and bouldering up to the rocks surrounding it for a picnic and relaxing nap. We started at Tom Bennett and just took our time checking out all the places to camp along the way, and of course, beautiful Cirque Meadows. It'll be an annual tradition, with camping next time.
This is a trail we always end up at for snowshoeing! It has a lot of snowpack and is dog friendly, an essential for a good trail. Not too many people this day, it was snowing a bit but the conditions were great otherwise. More of a trail, not too much to see through the trees and the trail is a bit hard to navigate the dog friendly parts, but good overall!
