This a good little hike to overlook the Fort Collins area and Horsetooth reservoir. As a first timer to the trail the trail map was missing or just non existent so the trail head is north of the parking lot. There is a fee of $9 to use the parking area even out of season and the toilets are closed. If you are a first timer do beware that if you pass the parking area there is a tire deflation device if you try and enter the wrong way!

Trail was snow packed. Not a lot of people. Some geese and smaller black birds (couldn’t identify).

Nice trail on a warm February day. Just right for my 4 year old. A bit muddy in places.

It's overall a nice trail, but half is paved and half isn't. There are also a lot of smaller trails that shoot off that are not listed on alltrails that make following the trail a little confusing if you don't know the area. Also parking is the back of the Harmony Transit Center, to make it easier for first timer's.

Steep incline at the beginning, micro spikes came in handy for some sections, but in general it was pretty muddy. After you get over the first slope the trail is well maintained. Was unable to finish the trail as shown due to nesting bird prey closing. Overall well worth it due to the beautiful scenery and being close to town.

01/22/20 weds. got there at 9 am on weds. no one else in lot at that point. lots of dry patches on the trail. however there is also still a lot of mud and ice and snow patches. be prepared to have your shoes or boots get muddy. and to go slow on the icy patches. very windy out today. reservoir ridge is a nice close by trail, but the views are not stunning.

Beautiful trail!
