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.

    Folks comment on the difficulty of finding a trail on the last portion of the hike to the summit. As long as the hiker is moving uphill – pick what looks the easiest – eventually you have to end up on the summit.

    People with dogs. Please don’t assume that you are entitled to be the exception to the rule of keeping your dog on a leash. Contrary to what you may think, not everyone you meet on the trail loves your dog nor should they! Nor do they want to be approached by your dog. Additionally, dogs don’t like pepper spray.
