Roosevelt National Forest Guide

Located a short distance west of Fort Collins, Colorado, Roosevelt National Forest is on the north and east sides of Rocky Mountain National Park. This 815,000-acre area, originally part of the Medicine Bow Forest Reserve, was renamed Roosevelt National Forest in 1932 as a tribute to President Theodore Roosevelt. There are 183 named mountains in this forest, including North Arapahoe Peak and South Bald Mountain. The Peak-to-Peak Highway, which is the northernmost highway to cross the Continental Divide, runs through this park before continuing to Fort Collins.
