I love the Cathy Fromme Prairie trail, it goes through the natural area and is a very lovely sight. If you want to take a nice stroll in the natural area this is the place for you. Pavement trails are great for strollers and bikes.

Walk the "Fromme" every day with our dog. Just beautiful and tranquil place. You get a great western view of sunsets over the front range. Only negative is the Rattlesnakes in the summer.

A nice trail network allows you to explore this space by foot or by bike. Amazing views of Horsetooth Mtn, and multiple access points. Public restrooms are available, as well as access to the amazing Ft Collins bike and pedestrian trail network.
