  • Never ceases to amaze me how nature can create such a structure. Looks like the backbone of a moivie monster. The trail is open and not protected from wind.  more »

  • This is a great place to bring visitors to hike who aren't acclimated to the elevation. The hike to the keyhole and back is about 3 miles and has a lot of great views of geological features without steep climbs. Good place to bring dogs too.
  • Great intro trail and it goes all the way to horsetooth so you can pretty much hike whatever distance you want. Can be pretty windy since it's an open space.
  • Great space for mountain biking and hiking. Lots of views of the foothills. Super nice that it’s just 5 minutes outside of Loveland!
  • Love the backbone. Great technical riding with his awesome views, link it to horsetooth mountain park for a long day on the bike
  • Nice trails close to town. Fun to hike, run and mountain bike. Connects to the Blue Sky Trail which connects to Coyote Ridge and Horsetooth Reservoir and Horsetooth Mountain Park.
