The hike was good and the trail was not busy. Got to the falls and was disappointed that the water was all gone. Still very pretty though.
Fun easy trail, nice views on top
Nice trail to the falls!!
Great hike on a beautiful day. 5.25 miles round trip. We went up the south ridge multipurpose trail to the top and down the hiking only trail. I think the south ridge trail is a little more steady and slightly shorter. If doing the loop again I'd reverse by taking the hiking only trail up and south ridge down. Should be easier on joints that way.
Was a Saturday morning hike and we met lots of people on the trail. Top 100 feet is a bit of a scramble up the rock. Steep on both sides so someone that is scared of heights might not do so well.
Watch for snakes! Beautiful hike
1st time, an adventure for us, not moderate unless you are accustomed to hiking at such inclines and elevation. Stay hydrated. Lots of steep inclines, loose rock/gravel to be aware of so you don't slip and fall or twist and ankle, hiking boots are appropriate for this hike. Worth it when you get to the top!
Good shoulder season hike. It gets hot in the summer and there are better hikes further west.
Great challenging trail.
Nice moderate hike near Fort Collins. Great views from the top of Horsetooth Rock.
I'm a novice hiker, and I am in pretty decent shape. Me and my roommate hiked both horse tooth falls and horse tooth rock and loved them both. We will probably be returning again in the near future :)
Nice trail, good views. It's nice to have something so nice in the foothills not requiring a long drive into the mountains. We did this hike on Saturday (5.8 mi loop). There was no water in the falls, but the Horsetooth itself was pretty neat and the view from up there was excellent.
Love this hike!
