Overview

Horsetooth 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. The whole area around the mountain has a multitude of trails for hiking, running, mountain biking and even skiing in the winter. 
You are required to pay a permit in order to access this area, and on weekends it can get pretty crowded.

Re: One of my.......

really? I liked it and was happy that it was a cold day (otherwise would have a hard time with people on the trails). Thanks for letting me know. I will think of you next time I hike it:)
