ScottHorsetooth  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 8, 2017


In the afternoon, I climbed Horsetooth Rock/Mountain. To date it was my favorite hike in the Loveland area.

I did a loop hike of the Horsetooth Mountain and South Ridge Trails and did the scramble to the summit. The views were great, but it was very windy on top.

On the way down I had a nice sunset that included some lenticular clouds.

Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2017


My friend and I drove from Salt Lake to Denver for the USMNT world cup qualifier vs Trinidad & Tobago at Dick's. We met a good friend from Fort Collins there, and wanted to do a little hiking with him before we drove back. I was wanting to do the approach to The Spearhead. I've longed to see that mountain again, as it was one of my favorites from my time living in CO. But we decided on seeing some of the local gems, instead of making the big side jump, as we needed to get home that night. So we did Horsetooth Mountain. It's a fun little 4 mile walk to the top with about 1,500' elevation from the trailhead, if you take in the falls, and Soderberg trails to the top. There is a network of fun little trails, and great views of Masonville from the Horsetooth. Great little place to trail run and explore.

Fun little climb up the south ridge. Mountain biked to the base and hiked it from there. Some good scrambles to be found on it

I climbed this in the later afternoon/early evening and stayed at the top to watch a really pretty sunset. There were about 20 other people spread out across the summit watching the same thing.

These hikes with bad weather in high country are perfect. Spring is very unpredictable, but there is Front Range with gems like this. I took kids to this hike, nice little mountain.

Nice cold hike, icy scramble to the summit. Duchess recovering from Vestibular Syndrome - still little unstable, but did great.

While being at CSU as an exchange student, we visited this mountain with my friend, approaching the trailhead by bike from Fort Collins. I remember meeting a green snake on the trail but I don't know what species it was.
