Hit the trail at Lory State Park and enjoy mountain biking, hiking and horseback riding amid some fabulous foothills scenery just minutes from Fort Collins and adjacent to Horsetooth Reservoir. From rolling valleys to mountainous hillsides, Lory State Park's 20 miles of trails rarely exceed a 12 percent grade. The variety of trails is great for short or long hikes, mountain bike rides, horseback rides and jogs. Backcountry camping is also available for visitors looking for a quiet getaway close to suburban Fort Collins .
Fun hike except we went on a busy day. Would like to hike it again without the busy day. Great hike with beautiful view. 1st part of hike gentle incline up to 1st major viewpoint. Last section of hike little more incline. Last 100yds or so much steeper but view is really great on top.
This was my first "real" hike in the area. Nice scenery along the way with a great view of the reservoir and Fort Collins at the top. Might be somewhat challenging on the way up depending on fitness level but overall a pretty comfortable hike. There's a few different rock formations after the scramble to the top. Go to the right for the best views.
