Rosalie Trail ist ein 11.5 Meilen langer, moderat besuchter Streckenabschnitt in der Nähe von Bailey, Colorado. Er führt vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt schöne Wildblumen und oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert, gezeltet und gebackpackt werden. Die Route ist am besten von Juni bis November zugänglich. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

This trail is long, but it's one of the most secluded-feeling trails that one can find this close to Denver. Use is moderate to heavy for the first 5 miles. The Rosalie Trail follows Deer Creek up to the saddle between Rosalie and Logan and ends at Guanella Pass.

Beautiful aspens, lovely hike. We made a loop of it with the three-mile and the abyss trail. Couldn't have asked for more color on the leaves. And if anyone finds a simple handmade and cheap silver ring... I lost my wedding ring out there. Wah wah.

Hiked to the Three Mile trail intersection on 7/22. Lots of bugs at the beginning of the trail but lots of wildflowers too. Not many people on this trail at all. We could not find the trailhead of Rosalie so did the Tanglewood Trail to Rosalie. At about 5 mils in we setup camp and then hiked further up to the saddle. WOW! Amazing and expansive view. You can even see the Mt. Evans parking lot. A hiker on the way down said he had seen a moose up there not an hour before. The trail is gorgeous and winds through Aspen trees for about a mile. Plenty of water right now along the trail. First mile or two is pretty steep but it becomse much more gradual as you continue.

My wife and I just completed a 5 day/4 night backpacking trip in Mount Evans Wilderness. We started out late-morning on Rosalie Trail on 6/29. Over three miles in we saw a campsite we just couldn’t pass up. The next day (6/30) we took off again and turned onto Three-Mile Creek Trail. Every step above tree line was absolutely stunning. Snow was not an issue and the wildflowers were starting to bloom. When we hit the creek crossings on three-mile (coming from Rosalie and heading down the trail) there were two crossings that provided a couple challenges, one of them would get boots soaked (we wore water shoes to cross) the other had swift and high flowing water that went above my knees (I am 5’10”). It was challenging to cross even for an experienced outdoorsman. The rest of the trail was easy to navigate and the creek crossings were easy log crossings. We camped near three-mile trailhead in another nice spot above the trail and creek. On 7/1 we hiked the road up to Abyss Lake trail. This is a beautiful trail, the only challenge was the third creek crossing as the creek was running very high and fast and the two logs set up to cross it were wet, slightly tilted and a little rocky. Our heart beats went up quite a bit crossing that little foot bridge, but went down when we settled into a beautiful campsite by the Abyss Lake/Rosalie trail intersection. 7/2 we first hiked up to Helm Lake then packed up our gear and headed back down Rosalie. We went back to our campsite from 6/29 and then hiked out on 7/3. This trip gets five stars for solitude (one day we ran into one other backpacker). It also gets five stars for some of the best camping sites we have ever set up camp at. We loved every minute of this trip. Snow was not an issue.

It was a steady incline and definitely had some beautiful views at the top, but I was unhappy with the trail structure. It was rocky the whole way such that we ended staring down at the ground avoiding rolling an ankle the entire hike.

Definitely the most secluded trail I have ever encountered. I saw only one other camper during the second day there. It's not very muddy, but many areas along the trail are overflowed somewhat, there were 'bridges' on a few creeks, and others had none. So bring extra socks and even extra shoes. There were wild flowers and dense spruce forest, incredibly beautiful. It's steep at the begining at the trail and mid way through, it eventually goes onto treeline. Amazing views of bierstadt and Evans. I loved this trail, helped clear my mind. There were a few snow drifts that were manageable or able to go around. The trail is clear and easy to follow.

Starting at Deer Creek Trail head, made it up to Three Mile Trail before lightning and sleet chased us back to cover lower down. Trail has lots of flowing water (creeks are over capacity) and snow drifts starting around 11,000'. Easily bypassed but you will get muddy and wet. This is a great hike starting at the Deer Creek side and everything is incredibly vibrant due to the moisture we received this winter. The grade at the start is pretty steep. Passed 2 groups totaling 3 people on the entirety of the hike. Secluded indeed.

I started around 10am and while there was a decent amount of snow it cold enough/packed enough that could relatively easily walk on/through it. But about three miles in I completely lost the trail due to so much snow, took a break and tried again still no luck. By the time I turned around the snow was so much softer that my shoes were completely water logged by the end and the actual trail portions were quite muddy. With all of that said, it's clearly a good trail and I suspect that this time next week it will be much, much better.

The trail is not accessible, as far as we could see, from the trailhead parking lot. You have to hike on tanglewood trail for a mile, then take a right and head over to Rosalie to get on it. It is beautiful, a little challenging, and the terrain is varied. we backpacked in and stayed just a couple miles in. There weren't too many people and the stream is wonderful.

Not the to the peak trail we thought, but it was beautiful and the views are amazing! glad my hiking partner stuck with me, we were not expecting a 23 mi round trip, but it was amazing none the less.

Oof, this trail was a slog in the spring! Very beautiful, steady up and down for the first few miles (starting from the Bailey end), then was almost impossible to follow--big patches of snow and mud, wound up sinking up to my thighs in snow with my shoes filled with muddy water underneath the snow. It's gorgeous, but I'm going to wait until later in the season before attempting again! Made it up to the junction with Threemile trail (about 6 miles up at a beautiful ridge/plateau), soaked in some views, and camped a little ways below in the tree line. Want to try this one again when the weather is better and tack on Abyss Lake too!

I hike this trail every year! Another hidden gem here in Colorado ! Outrageous fall colors! Rated as hard but once you get up the steep hill it's smooth sailing!!

Matched this trail with the Abyss trail for a wonderful loop. Spectacular views and scenery starting a top of Guanella Pass and hiking down to junction with Abyss trail. Camped at trail junction and exited next day. This would make a great day hike as well. Leave a car at each trail head.

I backpacked the first mile of this with my 7 & 9 year old boys. We found a great campsite about a mile into the trail and spent one night there before going home. The first mile had a few spots to cross the water. Two spots had simple wooden bridges. The third crossing had a make-shift log bridge that took a little balancing, or you could just walk through the shallow water. Overall my boys had a great time and were talking about going back as we left. From the looks of the pictures on the trail we missed out on some nice vistas by turning around after a mile. The dirt road approaching the trail head has a number of large potholes to avoid, but I had no trouble driving there in my small sedan. The trail head has a bunch of parking and we saw a number of people that were car camping right off the road. The National Forest website says you need a free permit at the trail head for backpacking, but we couldn't find any permits.

really nice hike, beautiful wild flowers everywhere!

Absolutely majestic trail - incredible views the whole way. However, there was hardly any trail markings to identify the trail from Tanglewood or Abyss or another. There were points where the trail was covered in thick brush and it was almost impossible to follow. Thankfully we had a map with us otherwise we would have easily been lost or rerouted onto another trail. Out of this world views, so definitely worth the trek, but be sure to bring a map and compass!

Great trail -- we started at the pass and hiked five miles in to the junction of Abyss trail. Note if you start at the pass, at 1 mile in there is a sharp left turn to stay on the trail (what you came on so far goes straight.) Look for the tall poles and follow them down the hill to the creek and beyond. Fantastic views and very quiet on a sunny Thursday.

We loved backpacking Rosalie trail and disperse camped with a view of Bierstadt. Because most were there for the 14er, we had the trail to ourselves (with the exception of some folks with llamas as pack animals lol). Beautiful views and changing terrain - very scenic. At night there was a pack of coyotes somewhere nearby but they didn't get too close. Creeks a plenty for refilling water bottles if you have a filter.

Did a loop of this trail to the Abyss trail and then up Bierstadt from the backside near the lake. Very challenging, but unbelievable views and serenity abound. The Rosalie trail is a great trail for back packing. Lots of excellent campsite options and quite a bit of nature to be seen.

Great time backpacking with kids on first part of trail. Terrific large group campsite next to the creek 3.5 mile in. Would love to go back in Sept for the Aspens.

Hiked 6 1/2 miles in to a lake that had a moose standing in it
