Fort Collins Hiking

Fort Collins has a plethora of trails for walking, jogging, hiking, in-line skating, biking, or a leisurely stroll inside city limits. The trails are maintained year round, with snow removed from them during the winter months. Trails serve as commuter routes for many students and residents as well. The beautiful scenery enjoyed along the system often makes one forget that they’re in urban Fort Collins. Just outside of the city limits, you’ll find renowned hikes and spectacular scenery. Everything from ‘lunch break’ hiking to day-long hikes, or multi-day hikes are just a short drive from the heart of town.
