Nice to just drive to at lunch or on a weekend to get out of time. Peaceful and it is fun to watch the lake change with the seasons.

Great place to hike with many trail options! Great views from the top of Horsetooth trail. If you like to hike, this is the place for you.

This is the best place in Fort Collins to hike. Anywhere from a few mikes to 12+, the views are beautiful from the top and, bonus, it is dog friendly! Parking is limited, so get there early, and there is a fee of $6.

My wife and I have never been to the Horsetooth Area before. What a neat place to boat and enjoy the views.. Makes you want to get a boat and water ski.

It's a small park around the reservoir of the same name. Some good opportunities for taking photographs of landscape and some wildlife.
