Beautiful hike. Unfortunately, part of Spring Creek Trail is closed so we had to make a small detour.

Hiked the Horsetooth Rock trail. Relatively easy trail. Saw families, dogs, etc. the last portion of the trail up to the peak of the rock did involve some steeper climbing up rocky faces. Lots of options to extend or shorten the hike along the way.
