  • This is a 4-square-mile park with long hiking paths (more than 26 miles) and picnic tables. We ate at the Homestead Picnic Area and then went on a nice hike on Well Gulch (2.8 miles) and Overlook (2.4...  more »
  • I horseback ride here regularly. It's also popular for hiking and mountain biking. Lory has miles of trails and connects with Horsetooth Mountain Park which is a county property.  more »
  • I went to Lory State Park this morning because I had read that it was a good place for wildflower viewing. I called the park earlier in the week and they said that there were wildflowers on the Well G...  more »

  • Took a hike up to Arthur's rock on a sunny March afternoon, the weather was perfect for hiking, sunny and sixty degrees. The trail head starts in the parking lot furthest down the gravel road from the visitors center and the hike is about one point seven miles from the parking lot. A small day pack with some water bottles and snacks is not a bad idea. The view from the top of the hill is very nice and you can do some bouldering along the way.
  • It's a beautiful park. The trails are well maintained, and the area is almost always in a good state of order. It's a shame that only the wealthy can use this public land regularly. At $7 to park your car per day, it's doubtful that many low income people would ever go enjoy their public land more than once or twice.
  • So beautiful yet only 4 stars was unfairly given because I had to call our hike short. Not so bad considering 56 days ago I was under the knife for total hip replacement surgery. This spring is already 1000% better than my last. So grateful to be over that pain!
  • This is a nice park right outside of town. Arthur's Rock is a must do at least once for any self respecting resident and a walk down the Shoreline Trail is a great respite from the heat or hustle and bustle of Fort Collins.
  • Always lovely; on a cold winter day it's also quiet. Can feel like you're far from everything even when you're barely out of sight of Fort Collins. PS: Arthur's Rock trail can be very icy, microspikes highly recommended.
