on Horsetooth Falls and Hors...
1 day ago


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.

Alright just to go get out of house, nothing amazing you can hear i25 the whole trail. Still nice views.

Large section at the start of the trail is flat and goes through the meadows with much of the same view. The loops section was pretty rocky so we unfortunately had to watch our step more than the view, but overall a pleasant hike for being so close to town. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to do this hike again though.

Beautiful!! We hiked early to avoid the heat. We would do this one again.

This was clearly the wrong time of the year to hike up and expect to see cascading falls but never the less the scenery was beautiful.

My girls (8,6,5) and I had a great hike. It's a beautiful hike.

Moderately easy hike. Long flat stretch going in and coming back to the parking lot. The foothills were nice though, nice terrain change and outlooks on the far side of the loop. I'd go again for a not-too-challenging hike.
