“A fun hike, but the views aren't to die for”

Horsetooth Mountain Open Space

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 visiting Fort Collins.

Horsetooth trails in Ft. Collins, CO were very scenic but somewhat difficult hiking trails for over age 50 in good health. Less strenuous options available but map n signage somewhat confusing. Took wrong turn where there was no sign when one needed to make a definite choice so ended up hiking for over 3 hours until I asked locals hiking for directions. Lovely views and well worth the time for sure.

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.

You have to experience the location as it offers hiking trails, biking trails, boating and water activities as well as getting out and running the trails if you like. There's something for everyone including a great top-down view of Fort Collins and surrounding areas. What are you waiting for as it is a 365 area to visit and enjoy?
