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.

Pretty trail, fairly easy but we didn't get to finish due to thunderstorm.

Hiked last Saturday- beautiful trail and great for energetic dogs. Also saw a moose which was pretty cool!

Not heavily trafficked today, at least! beautiful autumnal hike. easy, but rough enough terrain that I was glad I brought my hiking sticks. Also dog friendly, yes, but hand held leash required on trail

Went for sunrise like recommended by so many before me. It was absolutely gorgeous and had the summit to myself! Will definitely be back.

Gorgeous hike. The first 2-2.5 miles are super easy, then theres a bit of a climb for the last half mile to the 2 lower lakes. The climb to the third lake is definitely the steepest and most difficult part as it is completeley exposed, and there's a tiny bit of scrambling at the top. But nothing insane. Just take a few short breaks to remind you to breathe and you'll get there. If you're in really good shape, you'll be able to make it to the top no problem. I'm from sea level and am still getting accustomed to really high altitude. Even if you can't make it to the very top lake, I still recommend hiking up a little for the view of both lakes because it's spectacular. We started at 7am, and were back down in 4.5 hrs with two lengthy stops to enjoy the lower lakes and the upper lake (probably about 45 mins total). We only ran into two other hikers on the way up, but by the time we came down we passed a fair few people. If you like the solitude, definitely go early, and you'll have the whole place to yourself.

Ran it all the way to El Dorado. Open all the way. Ran with a group where we did some maintenance just after the water crossing and then a little further up. Also did the part down from Caribou to El Dorado which was much more technical. Beautiful fall colors.

Good views and pretty ponds coming up. Very steep towards the end.
