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 .

Made the mistake of making this my first hike of the year. My legs were not conditioned for the elevation changed and snow/ice. But that is more my mistake. Great hike with a great view at the top.

Decent beginner level hike. Not a loop.

Gorgeous views. Trail pretty icy.

Good incline all the way up. Only 3 miles.
