Hi. My family has car camped and day hiked.  We want to try a 1 or 2 night backpacking trip. We live in the Denver area so Arapaho and Roosevelt NF seems an obviously s choice, it looks like some permits are still available. Does anyone have recommendations for a first backpack trip? And my follow up question is how do I know what permit area my hike would be in ? Should I do this work backwards, find available permit then see if there’s an appropriate hike? Thanks!
