Great little surprise close to Loveland! Magnificent and breathtaking views enroute and at the summit. Does not appear to be heavily traveled. Forest Service road (128 and 153) all the way to the summit. Somewhat strenuous as road/trail can be steep and rocky. Take plenty of water .

great views, fun climb. did the out and back on 153. Storm Mtn Dr to fork with a brown wood sign marked forest access 128 pointed right, then just follow the trail all the way to the top. The loop at the summit might be hairy in a stock height vehicle but there's plenty of room to turn around at the base of the loop.

Just as stated in multiple previous reviews, the trailhead marked here is incorrect (actually a private road). Follow Storm Mountain Drive until you reach a fork with a sign pointing right labelled Forest Road 128; veer right and you should hit the trail gate.
From here youre on a gravel forest road (FDR153). Great views of the Front Range and Plains after a moderately steep climb. The portion labelled Storm Mountain Trail is not well marked and has many fallen trees across the path. Again, this ends in private time I'll just be going out and back on 153, not doing the loop around, to avoid trespassing.
Overall a nice trail close to Loveland/Ft.Collins, especially since 34 is open again.

Vear right at the fork on highway 34 at the Drake turnoff. the road to start the ascent is just at the bridge on the right side of the road. was a lot of fun, but cloudy day limited visibility. not too technical. stock trail 4 runner did just fine.

The directions to the trail are incorrect but my cousin and I had the best time on this trail. Would not recommend for a first time off road experience but definitely worth your time.

Liked the ride but not sure where to park truck and trailer to start. I think we were in wrong place but it was a beautiful ride.

Couple of friends and I went up a few weeks ago. It was pretty awesome. Some steeper climbing in a vehicle. Overall it was pretty neat getting up there.
