Lots of trails to checkout. Great views of the lake and Ft Collins. My trek was a little over 10 miles and lasted about 4 1/2 hours. I seen deer, turkey, rain, hail and lightning. Overall good hike and not a ton or people.

Started around 9am. Spent about five hours here on a Sunday in June. Went at least two hours without seeing another person. Great views!
