Visit to Coyote Ridge for a leisurely hike. The trail is well maintained with opportunities for late fall/early winter viewing. Most of the wildlife this time of year are laying low against the colder breezes coming off the mountain, but we saw prairie dogs and a good sized group of mule deer while we visited. Along the trail there are accurate and informative displays for individuals not knowledgeable about Colorado wildlife as well as a "nature center type" building for longer talks held by FC area naturalists (seasonal only). Once you've hiked to the edge of the open space area, you connect with trails to the north and south along the main hogback. Looking back, a great view of the plains, Fort Collins, Loveland and various reservoirs is a refreshing reminder of a good hike.
