Bent Rock Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"In what seems to be the middle of nowhere, the Bent Rock Trail isn’t just a surprise, it’s surprisingly diverse and scenic. Parallel a creek through a small red rock canyon with the namesake bend in the sedimentary rock and then complete a loop in wide- open country.Red Mountain Open Space is part of the larger 55,000-acre Mountains to Plains Project, a collaboration among Larimer County—which manages Red Mountain Open Space—the City of Fort Collins, the Nature Conservancy, Legacy Land Trust, and Great Outdoors Colorado (funded by Colorado Lottery earnings). But Red Mountain Open Space is a distinct area within this region."
