Wilcox Trail is a 1.4 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Fort Collins, CO that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until October.
There are some very pretty river views along this easy hike. I've seen deer 2 out of the 3 times I've gone, lots of bunnies and birds. The Rocky Mountain Raptor program has a facility by the parking area which is cool when they have birds in residence. Bring bug spray in warmer weather and you may want to wear pants due to the tall grass.
