If you're just looking to be outdoors and get some exercise in, this place is great, even with the $6 parking fee. If you're hoping to get some insane views, it's probably better to go on another hike. Apparently it's a staple hike for anyone...More

We had a wonderful day for a short hike on the well marked trails. Lovely boulders and several boats out on the water added to the beauty of this area. Very close to Midtown Fort Collins.

Been hitting up this trail for years! Always well maintained and friendly people to great on the ride or run. It's pretty busy on weekends but otherwise a Colorado treasure.

We decided to make a little detour from our hotel in Ft Collins up to Wyoming, avoiding I25 like the plague. This was a nice little drive a short distance out of town, looks like a great place to bring a boat and make a...More

What a fun hike! The wife & I did the Horsetooth Falls trail & cut across just below Horsetooth Rock. Took lots of pictures. There wasn't much wildlife so the majority was on scenery. $6 to enter & parking was very limited so I'd recommend...More
