From Moffat Tunnel east portal TH we hike into the James Peak Wilderness and up to the lower of two Forest Lakes.  If we feel good we can visit the upper lake which adds about a mile and 200' to the stats.  This is a very popular trail both summer and winter.  It is likely to be well packed and although this is listed as a snowshoe trip some may prefer microspikes.  Be prepared for either.  We get occasional views of the valley below but this trip is mostly in the trees.  The lakes are pretty in winter.
