This is one of Fort Collins favorites. Stunning views, hiking, water sports, mountain biking, climbing, photography...you name it you can enjoy it here. For individuals craving adventure you've got it and only 15 minutes from town. For those desiring a more laid back experience take a driving tour and stop at one of the parking areas to enjoy the scenery,... More

Old Town Yoga in Ft. Collins offers paddle board yoga classes here during the summers which BTW fill up super fast. They meet at the reservoir and then paddle over to a nearby cove. There's also great fishing on the lake from what I have seen along with hiking and biking trails. For my fellow history nerds, there's an actual... More

This open space offers several hiking trails and beautiful scenery. You can hike to the Horsetooth Falls for a shorter, easier hike, or up to Horsetooth Rock for more of a challenge. Dog friendly is always a plus! The parking lot gets very busy in the summer, especially on weekends, and there is a day use fee (I believe $7... More

What a view... the landscape is breathtaking. You can drive around to enjoy the view or hike. During summer, you can paddle boat, sail, fish, swim etc...

A good hiking trail. We climbed up and then crossed over where we could see the reservoir. Then we walked out on the horse tooth falls side. Good trails for the dogs.

We went hiking at Horsetooth over the Thanksgiving day holiday. While the parking is fairly limited, the hiking trails are great. We really enjoyed it.

This is my favorite place in the Fort Collins area. The picnic grounds are a great spot and even on busy holiday weekends you can get a table. The Sunrise Picnic spot has swimming and easy put in for stand up paddle boards, kayaks or canoes. There are grills but we usual bring our own portable gas grill. This is... More

Our family stopped very briefly to enjoy the views and take pictures. It was really beautiful. Would like to return to comment on the camping and fishing.

We wanted to drive around the reservoir and saw several nice picture spots. Signs indicate you can only enter the parking lot if you have a paid permit. We proceeded to enter as we were already entering when we read the sign and there was plenty of parking to stop for a few pics. Seems the majority of the people... More
