Was moderate. Only a couple of steep areas up to the falls. Only went to the top part of the falls can’t see much from there but the pool where the fall starts. Didn’t get to Horsetooth rock. Will try that later. Saw stellar jay, magpie and raven.

This was a great trail run up Bitterbrush, but Nelson Loop was closed on this mild January day. It's extremely rocky for portions, especially after the 1st mile or so up to the fork with Antelope Trail, but is less rocky than other places like the Wapiti Trail in Heil Valley Ranch or some of the trails at Rabbit Mountain. There were a number of hikers and bikers but few trail runners. The views were great. I will try the other trails here in the future!

Super well-marked, fun trail to run. The elevation gain is gradual enough that it's a good workout, but not killer. Trail is really rocky in some sections, though, which makes running a little more hazardous, but not impossible.

I did this trail yesterday. Definitely longer than 7.4....more like 9.5 to the top. I did about 8 and turned around to get down before sundown. Great trail markers. It was snowy...I’d say 4” where it wasn’t packed down. Great views out towards Loveland and RMNP.

went further today!!

My first real “hike” in Colorado. At the start of the trail I saw so much dog poop. I am glad it wasn’t all over the trail. Once you head up in elevation the pine trees start appearing. So scenic. The waterfall was frozen but I bet in the spring it’s stunning. I’ll be back.

A very nice trail to start of 2019. Nice views at the top of the trail. Great photo ops.

Great hike for winter! Beautiful views with lots of warm sun. No dogs, but fun for kids on bikes. Little steep at times but overall great for the entire fam!

great day. Busy but, good. I will be back.☺

This is a nice trail with a good variety of terrain and views. Hiked it on 1/5/19. There were quite a few spots with packed snow. I had micro spikes with me but didn't need to use them. You have to watch closely for the fork that splits to Sheep Mtn (right) and Stone Mtn (left). there is no sign post and it could be easy to miss. The fork is in a clearing about a quarter mile after you cross the creek. After that the Stone Mtn trail is not as well defined and easy to follow. But with an alert eye you should have no problem staying on it. There's a boulder scramble at the summit, but nothing technical. great views if you make it up there! I clocked the round trip at 7.55 miles.

No dogs allowed. Easy enough hike with decent views. Better hikes that allow my dog though.

Missed this hike for 17 years driving from FOCO to RMNP... Great hike with rolling hills and great rock formations.
My bride of 37 years & I thoroughly enjoyed this "walk in the park!"

it is one of my favorite trails and the prairie dogs are sooo cute

Great little trail with nice views

Made this hike right before Christmas and there was no snow and very few ice patches. Trail was busy with lots of people and dogs. In speaking to the ranger there has been mountain lion signs and sightings. During warmer months there are lots of snakes including rattlesnake. Will do this hike again.

Excellent views; great introduction to Fort Collins.

Hiked Breck to Frisco in about 4-1/2 hrs. Easy to follow trail that was pretty well packed. Didn’t need snow shoes. Not a hard hike.

This trail is a HIDDEN GEM. I don't generally like sharing amazing trails as I like to keep things I find to myself, BUT considering the fact that almost all of the reviews for Stone Mountain are FOR THE WRONG MOUNTAIN, I feel it extremely necessary to step in and give the correct information. If you follow the main summit trail to the top, you will end up on SHEEP Mountain. If you walk to the top and there's a huge summit cairn, a sitting area, and NO views, you are on SHEEP Mountain.

STONE Mountain can be reached by following the main summit trail to a faintly marked intersection about 3.5 miles in. Go LEFT for Stone, RIGHT for Sheep. The Stone trail is faint, but visible if you're looking for it. At this point, you only have 3/4 mile to the summit. Class 3 scrambling is required to get to the top, so small dogs or kids may not do well here, or anyone unable to climb a bit. Once on the top, you have 360* views of the plains, Longs Peak, and the Mummies. Absolutely worth the effort. 8.6 miles round trip, NOT 7.2 as advertised.

This was our first time to hike Horsetooth and it was beautiful. I took my 7 and 10 year old and we all made it to the top with no issues. There are a few slick spots along the way but we easily navigated around them. Views from the top are beautiful and I’ll be back for sure

My girlfriend and I, along with my best friend and his girlfriend, all tackled this bad boy last Sunday (12/9); and it was magnificent.

We got a relatively late start after making the roughly two-hour drive up from Fort Collins; beginning our snowshoeing trek around 12:30 pm and returning to our vehicle around 4:30 pm.

The road down to the actual trailhead was closed due to the amount of snow, so we added an additional 4 miles to our trip (approx. 6 miles round-trip). With the small parking lot being full, we just parked along State Hwy 14 without a problem.

The road leading up to the trailhead was somewhat steep, but we were blessed with blue skies the whole way up. And even though the temp dropped into the single digits near our trek's end, we were well prepared to bare the elements.

The Crags to the east of the trail provided us with some stupendous views as the sun crept down beyond the mountains, just illuminating the tops of these exceptional peaks. We made it all the way to the lake, but decided not to make the full loop around, for it was getting dark and with most of the hike being in the shade (and at least 10 degrees cooler), we decided to head back. We were fortunate enough to only have seen four to five other groups on the trail, which just added to the splendor of this amazing hike!

Would love to return in the spring or summer to see how different it is in another season!

Tip: Make sure you have your All Trails Map downloaded prior to the hike, for we almost took a wrong turn and got lost, as the trail is completely covered in snow.

Near our house.. and the puppy loves it! A great after-work or Sunday morning hike.

This was a great hike. It was so icy and hard to navigate. I will definitely go back when it gets warmer.

Nice trail

This is one hike I always recommend to someone going to Colorado. Stunning view at the top!

Nothing fancy, I kept thinking "Wow! I bet this area was gorgeous before the fire!", which was a bit of a let down. Because very little of it was really that pretty compared to other nearby areas. I would say keep in mind it's a "Gulch" not a Mountain, Rock, or Peak. Worth the exercise if you stay left and go up the "moderate" way.

Great trail for a day of escape from the stresses of dealing with my momma and her Alzheimer’s. Friendly hikers, well behaved dogs. Was busy but going in the afternoon I think I missed the Saturday crowds. Clean and well maintained this was a great walk for stretching our legs!

Breck trailhead just past peak 7 base. Easy hike with little elevation through beautiful forests

Great trail!! The dogs loved it, and me and my friend loved it. It was not far outside of Loveland. And like others have said, it is pretty rocky the farther you go. Like big red rock slabs! This is a super dusty walk though..just FYI. I really enjoyed myself though.. it was a nice incline and not too crazy. Everyone was respectful and nice.
