|Sunrise from Horsetooth Rock (summit 1)|
I was looking for about 4 hours today on the Horsetooth and Lory trails with a good amount of climbing. What I ended up doing was a first for me. I'll call it Fort Collins' version of R2R2R (Horsetooth Rock to Arthurs Rock to Horsetooth Rock). I didn't take the most direct route in either direction and instead made a nice loop of it. I usually don't even bother to tag these summits, but I have kind of been on a summit tagging binge lately. Just under 20 miles for the day and just over 5000 feet of climbing. Trail conditions are perfect right now for El Chubbo
Southridge-Audra Culver-Horsetooth Rock (to summit)-Westridge-Towers-Mill Creek-Howard-Arthurs Rock (to summit)-Valley-Sawmill-Loggers-Herrington-Spring Creek-Wathen-Horsetooth Rock (to summit)-Southridge.
Start/Finish at Horsetooth Mountain Trailhead.
