Red Mountain Open Space was a great area for a good trail run. I liked it as there wasn't that many people here as compared to places closer to Fort Collins or in the mountains. The landscape is neat especially when running along the various washes and the amazing landscapes that the rivers have carved. However, it still isn't quite as good as compared to some of the mountain landscapes. I still recommend it as a unique place to visit and experience.
