Route critique/help needed - Longmont - RMNP - Walden - Red Feather Lakes - Longmont
I posted this in touring without any response. Maybe someone here can help.
I am planning to do this June 16-20.
Day 1: Longmont to RMNP via route 7. Camp at Moraine Park.
Day 2: Leave very early. Over Trail Ridge Road then North on Rt 125. Camp at Denver Creak or Sawmill Gulch campground (any recommendation of one vs other?)
Day 3: Continue north on Rt 125 then East on Rt 14 through Gould. Camp at Ranger Lakes campground. It looks like there are several camgrounds in the immediate vicinity of Ranger Lakes. Any recommendations of one over another?
Day 4: Continue east on Rt 14. North on Rt 162 to Red Feather Lakes. Can anyone recommend a campground in the Red Feather Lakes area?
Day 5: South on 162 back to Rt 14. Resume east on Rt 14. South on Rt 27 and work my way back to Longmont.
Thanks for any suggestions. Regarding camping in the Arapahoe/Roosevelt Forest, am I aloud to just find a spot and make camp?
