  • Great hikes close to town. We did the Horsetooth Falls Loop with 3 kids and a dog. Trails are leashed-dog friendly, a great alternative to Rocky Mountain National Park which is not dog friendly. 3...

  • Beautiful local hike that was a lil more intense than perhaps our understanding of the reviews let on. But, absolutely gorgeous space right near home. So dry this time of year, so the Falls were but a trickle, but the hike up was great (even on a very windy day)!
  • 5.5 miles. This is a great hike for all skill levels, with great views all around. Start early in the morning when the weather is warm and bring loads of water. This is a GREAT night hike with fantastic views of Fort Collins. It is also a really nice hike in the winter. The Horsetooth Mountain Park trail system is ideal for trail running as well with trails that link up to adjacent Lory State Park (north) and the Blue Sky trail (south) which eventually links with Coyote Ridge and Devils Backbone! Great for mountain biking endurance junkies and noobs alike!
