OverviewHorsetooth Mountain is a small mountain located 4 miles west of Fort Collins. The rock formation forming the summit of Horsetooth is often used as a symbol of Fort Collins. The name comes from its distinctive appearance to horse teeth. From the summit you can see on clear days Longs Peak and Mount Meeker.

You are required to pay a permit in order to access this area, and on weekends it can get pretty crowded.
