“Open spaces, good connecting trails & great views”

Coyote Ridge Natural Area
Reviewed 25 November 2013

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.

This i a part of the excellent trail system located in and around Larimer County/Ft.Collins. This is a moderate to difficult ride/hike depending on your health/abilities. Great view on top. You can see multiple wildlife if you pay attention. Winter is an excellent time to see a different landscape.

The area has a nice trail system for hiking, running, or mountain biking. The climb up to the ridge is a good workout. Prarie dogs are easily viewed as well as rabbits. Good place for a workout or leisurely walk.

This is a good access to the Blue Sky Trail if you are coming from S.W. Fort Collins or N.W. Loveland. Starts with a quick grind up a gravel path, then turns into technical singletrack for the last mile or so before hooking up with Blue Sky. Singletrack is generally intermediate level, however, there is one expert-level rock feature.

Must be able bodied, but not difficult. Gradual grade increases. Rocky path. Carry water, a snack, and layers for weather changes. Hiking shoes are recommended over tennis shoes. Watch and listen for bicyclists and rattlers!
