    Route Description for Rosalie Trail via Tanglewood

    This forestland adventure is awesome and will impress those seeking a secluded wooded trail. If you are seeking mountain vistas, then we wouldn’t recommend this shaded path. The Rosalie Trail via Tanglewood route will guide you through a mixed aspen and pine forest to an overlook of Deer Creek. If you hike this path in the late fall, you may get the odd Front Range view between the falling foliage. Though you can venture this hike year-round, the autumn views are incomparable. Enjoy the vibrant yellow aspens towering above as you trek the woodland path.

    From the parking lot, track the route signposted as the Tanglewood Trail. Cross Deer Creek and begin your ascend into the woods. Track up the forested gulch and enjoy the strikingly vibrant aspens. Hike up the valley and you will eventually meet a junction. At the intersection, you will want to take a sharp left down the primitive Rosalie Trail. This is where most of the confusion begins, use the trail GPS to help to navigate the unmarked path. Find the primitive route and track southwest. Tree coverage will be a bit sparser along this trail so you may get the odd mountain view. Hike this path until you meet the trail’s end overlooking Deer Creek.

    Enjoy the meditative sounds of the running stream before beginning your return. To get back to the trailhead, retrace your steps along the path back to the parking lot. Ensure to take a hard right back down the Tanglewood Trail or you will mistakenly lengthen your excursion.
