One of my favorite activities is hiking. I find hiking to be a great activity that allows me to enjoy the outdoors, often in a solitude impossible to experience in the city. Often I hike with friends and enjoy deep conversations on a variety of topics. Besides providing great exercise, hiking offers an excuse to plan trips to the mountains, even if for just a day. I'm attempting to work up trip reports and picture galleries for some of the more notable hiking adventures. Note that my trip reports for the 50 U.S. state highpoints and Colorado 14'ers are in separate sections of this site.

I've spent most of my time hiking rather than keeping this hike page up to date. If you're just looking for information on hikes close to Fort Collins, check out the Poudre Wilderness Volunteers pages. They have a great list of local trailheads and trail descriptions for the Cache la Poudre River and Big Thompson River canyons and for the Rawahs.
