One of the great aspects of living in Fort Collins, besides Tour de Fat, hosting stage 6 of the Pro Challenge, the New West Fest and the upcoming FORToberfest, (basically, Fort Collins festivals are all about bicycles, bands, and beers) is living close to some amazing hiking. On Saturday, we hiked to Greyrock Mountain.
We arrived just before 9 am and the trail parking lot was already full, although you can still park on the street. The trail starts with a bridge over the Poudre River. We hiked up the Meadow trail first. Unfortunately, a lot of the forest in this area is burned, which gave me some appreciation into the scale of these fires.
