Easy hiking on rolling singletrack in the valley.

Family Friendly Even young kids will enjoy this easy trail, especially since you shouldn't have to drive too far to get there!

Description

If you use this trail by itself you should park at the northern end of the park and head south. You can easily make it a loop with the West Valley Trail, and if you do, you should park in the southern lot and hike counter-clockwise. There are multiple branches out to coves on Horsetooth Reservoir as well.

Easy family hike just outside of Ft. Collins. Drive along the reservoir to get to the Lory State Park. Our 4 year-old daughter was able to keep up with ease. Feb 6, 2017
