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 .

Fantastic hike. Very steep in parts. I would rate it medium to hard.
Fantastic views of Horsetooth Reservoir and Ft Collins.

Good trail to take kids. We went slower than I'd like but my 4 year old was able to hike most of it. You can take this trail to outlook trail to add another 1.2 miles.

Sunrise was spectacular at the top.
