Limited parking and it's possible to camp out here. Not many animals for a forest but that's probably all the surrounding development. Love to come here for a walk or bike ride on the trails.

Trails, mountain biking, youth camping with permit, town residents only. About six miles of trails. Nothing too rugged. Nice pavilion with fire place, several fire pits and picnic tables.

Roosevelt Forest is a wonderful fquiet place to walk, or just sit on a bench overlooking the pond. There is a covered pavilion for picnics and walking trails. Not a lot of activities available, but perfect for a short hike or family picnic.

Not worth the time. Nothing scenic. Simple path through the woods. No parking for anyone from out of town.
