I'm not sure if these lakes are named for Teddy or FDR, but there's one for each party. 

This hike begins at the Tanglewood Creek trail head and gradually climbs to a saddle along Pegmatite ridge. The bulk of the elevation gain we do on this trip is covered over the first 3 ½ miles, so expect some tough steep sections. From the saddle, we’ll then descend approximately 300’ in 1 mile to Roosevelt Lakes where we can finally enjoy lunch. Our return trip involves 300’ of character building elevation gain, but having just finished lunch, it might feel like a thousand feet!


Please bring plenty of water, lunch & snacks and your 10 essentials.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
