Live By Living Day Hike: Foothills Trail in Fort Collins. Tuesday, October 17

Join us Tuesday, October 17th as Dave leads a MODERATE hike along the Foothills Trail for a great view of the city to the east, and Horsetooth reservoir, Horsetooth rock and Lory State Park to the west. This is an out and back. The trail is dirt with some rocks to navigate. If you’ve ever seen the white “A” on the hillside when looking west above the old CSU stadium, this is the trail that leads you there.
