Mountain biked the trail today. Very few people out (less than 10 for the 23.7 miles). Somewhat technical in spots. Part of the loop portion at the end has signs saying it’s closed. I didn’t take that part. Instead I followed Salt Lick down the arroyo until the next sign (forget the trail name), hung a left, and after .5 mile was back on Cheyenne Rim for the last 7.5 miles.

This loop on our phones and Fitbit show us 5.6 miles. We got an early start at 6:30am, lots of cloud cover. Deer, antelope, buffalo and coyotes. Along with a black footed ferret over by the maintenance area. Sun screen, water and a wide brim hat are a necessity. This is a very easy hike to do

Saw a small bear twice. One time was at a good distance but we ran into him again closer to the peak and was on the trail. Maybe about 20ft away. We turned around and went back the way we came to avoid him. Watch out! Great flowy mt biking trail!

No fee, restroom open again! A nice-easy loop on the prairie with good views as you turn the corners. Bring a sun hat and plenty of water.

Great local trail with very little traffic. Take the mountain bike out for an easy cruise. Mainly soft dirt and gravel with some nicely banked single track. Super pretty prairie landscape. Untouched nature thriving. Keep an eye out for the buffalo.

Great trail - beautiful views of the mountains. Saw bison and pronghorns. No mud no snow. Bathrooms closed for covid-19. Great park!

The Good: Easy, quiet, peaceful, some pretty good panoramic views. The not so good: Kind of boring. Also, there is absolutely no shade. Go early and bring water and a hat.

Diamond in the rough just 45 minutes north of Ft. Collins. Only been around for about a decade, so if you’re seeking solitude, this open space is easily worth the serene trip. It does take a few miles of gavel road to get to but nothing you would need four-wheel drive or ground clearance to navigate. Steady climb with breezy ridge views halfway through. Lots of pronghorn antelope and unique rocks to enjoy. No bikes on this particular trail, but keep your eyes peeled for a few horse patties toward the beginning. I recommend taking the trail clockwise to more easily enjoy the views on your descent.

Our hike was pleasant. We saw less than 10 people on the trail. When we began the hike it was cloudy but into the hike it got sunny. I recommend bringing/wearing a hat. There's no shade.

Hiked with a group on March 31. Trails were covered with average of 2 inches of snow. Did Towhee loop and Mahogany Loop for 7 miles. Trails easy and snow covered landscape was spectacular. Took 4 hours to complete. Temps were 20-30 degrees. Enjoyable and scenic.

Like most of our hikes this one started in the morning hours from FOCO. The drive to Soapstone is enjoyable with the best feature being the ability to stop and view the bison herd that is west of the road into area. We got an eyeful albeit with binoculars and continued driving dodging rather large jack rabbits on the road as we went, smiling all the way! Onto the hike … If you’ve done your research you know this is a prairie, all prairie and very beautiful. But not a lick of shade and the temps rise fast. We parked in the lower lot, which was empty. The trail we took, the western arm of the Pronghorn loop, started just north and east of the lot entrance. After a few switchbacks we emerged onto the upper plateau, very grateful for the breath of fresh air after the humidity filled switchbacks. As we hiked we were watched by several male sheep from the east. Why? All the females filled the small depression to their north. Nice to watch as the sun rose behind them. Off we went into the prairie dog community. It’s a flat and fun walk, the dogs are very chatty! We made the turn around the mound and headed off to the Lindenmeier overlook. Arrival! The views are incredible and so is the history behind the area, the reason for the overlook. Had lunch, few pictures at the overlook and then hiked the Towhee Loop. Great plan and my wife spotted a deer resting on the hillside while ascending the western arm. And to her great shock, almost stepped on a snake coming back down the eastern arm. It was just off the trail, did not strike and had round pupils, so that helped regulate the adrenalin, ha. At this point we just followed the same trail back to the lower parking lot. During our hike we did not see many hikers but several groups of bikers. All were friendly, just not abiding by the right-of-way rules. It’s a great hike, take water-lots and we’ll see you on the trail!

Perfect moderate workout from easy areas to a bit more challenging with long moderate uphill treks, to sand-washes that can grab your tires... so get your speed up in those areas. Some parts were easy with downhill coasts and that also means you have to climb at some point to get back to the parking lot. :) Wonderful weather... would do it again!

The trail begins about 100 ft north of the picnic area at the South Trailhead Parking Lot in the Soapstone Prairie Natural Area. The trail meanders and gradually gains in elevation along the bluff line to the west. At about the five mile mark the gain markedly increases, but is still moderate until you gain the rim the overlooks the Red Mountain Open Space to the West. The trail is easy to follow, but there are numerous game and stock trails along the way. There are many side trails. These run to various stock tanks or are old Ranch roads. The trail is popular with horses and mountain bikes. The area is good winter range for Pronghorn Antelope, Mule deer, and Elk. The ares is also winter range for cattle.

Approaching the rim from the east was a great ride, but attempting to decent via the western route was very rough. Several portions of the trail were essentially riding down sand and gravel filled washouts, and extremely tight single track conditions. Would recommend full suspension.

Approaching the Cheyenne Rim Trail from the Wyoming border is a bit tricky as there is no way to get to that end of the trail without hiking about 4 miles from Harriman, Wyo. All other roads into that area are gated. In addition, there’s no pedestrian gate in the fence where the topo map indicates a trailhead. So, it was unclear whether or not I was on public land. That said, this part of the trail offers some beautiful views of the surrounding hills and valleys. It’s an easy hike with only minimal elevation change. Watch out for the brambles along the canyon rim, though. They’re a bit tough to negotiate…
