There are about 5 miles of soft surface trail. Reservoir Ridge is the northern end of the 8.2 mile Foothills Trail. The Foothills Trail connects Pineridge, Maxwell and Reservoir Ridge natural areas. Trail markers show you the way. Biking on the Foothills Trail is for the experienced cyclist. Visitors to this foothills natural area enjoy its rugged trails, access to the 8.2 mile Foothills Trail, wildlife viewing opportunities and a feeling of remoteness- all close to Fort Collins. Youll see dramatic rock outcroppings, grasslands, mountain mahogany shrubs and a few ponderosa pines. Views of the city, the foothills and Horsetooth Reservoir are great from the trails!Show more
