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.
Easy / Moderate trail with sun and shade. Beautiful trail with little traffic. Very enjoyable
had a wonderful time, not too crowded if you start early!
Challenging but worth the view!
Loved it! A must.
This is one of those basic hikes which should really make someone curious about hiking. The total 3.7 mile round-trip distance can be covered in under 1hr 30min with generous time at the top. The views from the top are decent. An extremely easy 5 min scramble at the end with pretty average trail throughout. Over all this is a very easy hike suitable for evening stroll. The park closes at 9pm so venturing for the hike after 7.00 pm should be slightly unwise given that you won't make it till 9.00.
Great hike, not too steep and great view of horsetooth from the top
Awesome trail and spectacular views!!!
The trail is well maintained and partly shaded. It gets a little bit more challenging (but still not too challenging) towards the end but the view is quite rewarding. Overall it's a great trail for a short hike.
Great short hike. Took us about 2 hours roundtrip with a 15 minute stop at the top. Very constant incline all the way up with the hardest part last. Nothing difficult, but a good thigh burner. Great views of Horsetooth Reservoir. Unfortunately, doesn't give views of any of the western peaks. Lots of amazing trails all around for running or biking too! Excellent trail marking and maintenence, no maps needed.
Very steep in some spots, and the trail can be very rocky. But once I got to the top I was amazed by the views. Also got a good workout on the way up. Plenty of other trails to connect to the rest of Lory State Park, or even go into Horsetooth Park.
This was my first hike in the Fort Collins area. My wife and I enjoyed this trail.
Challenging, beautiful views.
This was a nice hike with lots of pretty wildflowers, butterflies and birds along the way. The view at the top was beautiful.
Amazing views of Fort Collins from the top! Not too challenging or long. Perfect day hike.
