Valley Loop Trail is a 4.1 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Masonville, Colorado that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is good for all skill levels offers a number of activity options. Horses are also able to use this trail.
Nice open trail, not much tree coverage but great breeze. Ran counterclockwise & managed to be going the opposite way of all the bikes so,that's probably safest...watch out for the manure all over the trail!
Very fun trail!
A very nice walk. Was overcast and that was good as there are not many parts of this hike that are in the shade. Horses and some mountain bikers on trail but relatively few people. Lots of trails off of this route to get in some cardio and additional miles. Would come again.
Wonderful trail for those looking for a peaceful place early in the morning, horseback riding, and/or people with small children. My go to spot for a trail close to Fort Collins with lots of solitude. There are great views of the foothills in that area but no views of Longs Peak, Continental Divide, etc- plus very little shade!
Great hike. Good one to take the kids on. No Dogs. The Cabin was pretty cool for the kids and the parents. Perfect day today!
Small parking lot that fills up fast. Eastern half of the loop is gravel and really flat with no coverage. Western half goes up into the hills, has nice views of the valley/western side of Horsetooth Rock and has some tree coverage. Saw hummingbirds, mule deer and western hognose snake. Historic cabin in the northeast that was neat. Nice local hike.
I always enjoy this hike. Awesome views and lots of wildlife
