Horsetooth Mountain Open Space – Falls Trail
Updated on September 21, 2009 by Mary Norton
Trail Length2.25 miles round trip
Horsetooth Mountain Open Space outside of Fort Collins is a good place for families to hike. We take the Horsetooth Falls trail. It’s a 2.25 mile hike (round trip) that leads to some falls, rocks for scrambling on and a small/cave overhang. The falls does slow down to a trickle in late summer/fall. The trail has lots of fun ups and downs and crosses a creek.
