“A beautiful trail through ponderosa forest with views of Long's Peak and Fort Collins.”— Nicholas Shannon
From this slope there is an option to scramble up the north or south end of Horsetooth Mountain to reach its peak. If you choose to scramble to the top, you'll discover an incredible view of Long's Peak to the west and Fort Collins to the east.
On a particularly clear day you can look down along the front range all the way to Denver.
