trail running

Hit the trail at Lory State Park and enjoy mountain biking, hiking and horseback riding amid some fabulous foothills scenery just minutes from Fort Collins and adjacent to Horsetooth Reservoir. From rolling valleys to mountainous hillsides, Lory State Park's 20 miles of trails rarely exceed a 12 percent grade. The variety of trails is great for short or long hikes, mountain bike rides, horseback rides and jogs. Backcountry camping is also available for visitors looking for a quiet getaway close to suburban Fort Collins .

Great view at the top, lots of shady spots along the trail, not too tough either, several families with younger children on the trail today.

Nice hike with lots of dogs on the trail. Hiked it in the rain and had a great view of a rainbow. Beautiful view of Horsetooth Reservoir.

I parked further down the road to get me a little more mileage. Great trail running! Saw tons of deer, adorable chipmunks at the top!, and thankfully only 1 snake.

Nice hike. Hike leans toward moderate because it's a continuous climb to the summit. Only passed three other people on the trail. Nice views a long the way and especially at the top. Our dog Max enjoyed the hike also.

Arthur's Rock. Very scenic from the top. Easy hike. If you are wanting a short but good hike this is the one. It took me about 2 hours and that's with me stopping and taking pictures and sitting and reflecting on life.

Nice hike for families. A little challenging toward the start but eases up. Good workout and some great views of Horsetooth/Fort Collins.
