Easy grade through lots of different environments. It was a beautiful wild flower hike following the river. Still snow at lost lake but you can still get through.

Our family loves the North Fork! We frequent this trail and enjoy hiking, trail running, camping, and relaxing in the hammock! Our kids are ages 8-13 and it is a great hike for our family, also dog friendly!

I love this trail! I had not hiked it since the 2013 flood and was amazed by the reconstruction of the trail. Granted there is a lot of terrain that was remodeled by the flood and the trail had been rerouted in some areas but it is still a fantastic trail. My dogs absolutely love this trail due to the readily available access to a water source.

Lost Lake is at the end of the trail in Rmnp. At about 10 miles. No dogs allowed after the park boundary. This area was devastated by 2013 flood but volunteers for the park service have rebuilt the trail and bridges. Camp only in designated areas. Permit required to camp in RMNP.
One of my favorite hikes for 30 years.
Moose mtn lion and elk. Keep dogs on leash for your safety and theirs.

This trail info was very deceiving. There was a picture of a lake on this page but you cannot get to is on this trail!

The trail was okay... but once you get to the end there is not place to camp!!! The trails in the Rocky Mountains park were AWFUL!

Also one side of it trail is cut off. No good! very deceiving. All in all for a day hike yes!!! the trail rocks. but for backpacking I would say a hard no!

This is a great hike if you need to get out for the day! Great for dogs because of the many water crossings. Shade and sun is great too. Be cautious in the spring/early summer; snow can still be present past the boys camp. Can be muddy past boys camp but still passable.
