Awesome front range views

Some tough spots. Some easy spots. A good moderate trail.

Nice hike up to the top of the falls, spotting a bobcat along the route. Continued up Spring Creek Trail and banged a left onto Wathan Trail. Liked this route to Horsetooth Rock but for a good stream of mtn bikers coming down it. Courteous riders let us know whether they were solo or with a # of riders. Wish I had a poles for the descent as my shins 'n toes were smarting a bit; my poorly trained dogs pulling me down the trail were part of the issue.

Great hike with absolutely phenomenal views of the north range. The 3-Mile hike to the rock has its mildly strenuous parts, but they’re nothing that can’t be tackled with a quick break in between. I’d recommend this to anyone new to the area.

Seems like trails are too rough for bikes but nice hiking and trail running done. Get there early for parking spot. $6 per vehicle or get an annual pass for $75.

This is another one of those "must hike" locations whether you're from Ft. Collins, attending CSU, or just have active parents in town for homecoming weekend. A great hike worthy of the views of town and the Eastern Plains from the top of Horsetooth Rock.

Beautiful hike hoped for more fall colors but still beautiful
