Greyrock Trail and Greyrock Meadow Trail are very popular due to their scenery and close proximity to Fort Collins.
Both of these trails are steep and rocky. They will intersect above Greyrock Meadow where hikers can decide to head back or go to the summit. Greyrock Trail follows a deep draw most of the way to this intersection while Greyrock Meadows Trail will provide more scenic views to the west and a good view of the Greyrock Meadow near the top.
The trail up to the summit gets a little more difficult. Rock ciarns will be the only way to follow the trail in some places and you will have to use your hands to help climb up a couple times.
