Very scenic area with several places to pull over and stop. Many with picnic tables and grills along with a toilet (latrine). Not much in the way of shade around the tables. Hiking trails & boating. Just a gorgeous area to spend the day and...More

This is a large reservoir with boating, paddle boarding, swimming and scenery. The drive around is so nice and gives you a great view of the town of Ft. Collins. There are some nice easy hikes up to Horsetooth.

After being on the road for over 10 days this was a nice place to relax and wine down. Our boys enjoyed a dip in the lake. Lots of places to park and the marina was great place to rent some water stuff. Beautiful area!

Horsetooth is a great place to have some fun or relax in a cove. Saturdays are always pretty busy. Fun to hang out at the swim beach.

We went paddle boarding, hiking, and had a great bike trip once I unloaded my bike on a trail...I could not make it all the way up the hill, but many do...challnage yourself.
