Love this trail for a quick solo hike. Once you get to the other side you can cross the street and watch the boats on the reservoir. There are always deer here when we go!

Highly populated trail, dogs galore and xc mountain bikers. Avoid weekend outings on the trail if you can, but nice view of Horsetooth reservoir and the town of Fort Collins at the top. Have to pay to park.

Beginner mountain biking trail. Not too difficult if you have the right bike.
