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.

This is a great spot on a hot summer day. There is a Creek that runs along the trail. Bug spray is a necessity. Mosquitos are fierce on this trail! It's very confusing to find the waterfall and reservoir because the trail seems to just end and there are no signs. You have to look for a little trail that leads up and over rocks. You have to climb down to the falls or keep going to the reservoir. There is just a small access spot to the water and no swimming allowed. My dog ( Labrador) had some problems getting over the rocks to get up to the trail leading to the water. Not sure how that would be with kids.

Good, easy hike through the forest. This hikes let's you avoid waiting to get into the Indian Peaks Wilderness area and avoid having to pay $11. It is a great hike but it is a bummer when you feel like you earned your views and then everyone at the lake (the final spot of the hike before turning back) just drove in and parked.

Pretty falls. Long way back to the trail head and very poor signage. Would have hiked longer if we knew we were heading in the right direction.

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!

very gradual uphill. rewarding view

Cool road. Lots of places to explore. Map on all trails is not 100% accurate.

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.
