One of the most recent additions to the Fort Collins natural areas system, this superb slice of foothills southwest of Horsetooth Mountain Park near Masonville almost makes you feel like you are in the red rock canyon country of Utah. The soaring cliffs and foothills, pretty rolling terrain, and quiet invite reverie.
Arrive early if you want solitude. It is also sun drenched with little shade and so is not a good midday summer hike but is ideal for spring and fall. It offers easy mountain biking too at least until you reach the eroded sections where the rocks pop out. The recently opened Ginny Trail loop is an advanced mountain biking adventure that is steep and rocky.
