This is a 2.2 mile out-and-back hike to Horsetooth Falls in the Horsetooth Mountain Open Space west of Fort Collins.

We will meet at 5:30 pm at the Horsetooth Mountain Trailhead on County Road 38E (see for driving directions).  If you don’t have an annual entrance permit for Larimer County parks, you will need to purchase a daily entrance permit for $9.00 per vehicle at the trailhead self-service station.

From the trailhead, we'll hike north 1.1 miles to Horsetooth Falls, gaining 393 feet in elevation.  After a brief break, we'll retrace our steps back to the trailhead, where we should arrive by approximately 7:00 pm, which is just before sunset.  Please bring a headlamp in case we're late.
