    Roosevelt National Forest?

    Has anyone been to this park? I was driving up to RMNP and saw the pull off right before Lyons so on my way back i stopped but i did not have my bike. Is this a cool place to ride?

    Any info or links would be great.

    Thanks

    Pretty much any USFS riding on the front range north of I70 and east of the divide is Roosevelt National Forest.

    Chris,

    Quick primer.

    There is a difference between National Park lands and National Forest. The National forest is under the dept. of agriculture and parks are under the dept. of the interior. They are tow very different creatures as far as what they are managed for and how they are managed

    US National forest lands are divided up into administrative areas. Zones are the largest and they may encompass 4-6 National Forests which can vary in size but usually are at least a million acres. National forests are then divided into ranger districts. The Roosevelt manages US forest lands in the north central part of the state and is I don't know how large but probably a couple million areas.

    Are you thinking of maybe Hall Ranch just north of Lyons or possibly Rabbit Mountain just east of Lyons? I think I remember a Roosevelt Forest sign on the east side but may be mistaken and thought it was probably an information station.
