    Rocky Mountain National Park

    My wife and I have a reservation to tour the New Belgium Brewery in a couple weeks in Fort Collins. We have a few hours to kill before then and were wondering if anyone had suggestions on things to do nearby. I noticed there are quite a bit of hiking trails in Rocky Mountain National Park. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Go into Poudre Canyon. It's less crowded and it's closer to Fort Collins.

    I'm 30 min from there. Come see me.

    There are 3 other amazing breweries. I suggest checking those out.

    Re: Rocky Mountain National Park

    Hiking RMNP is awesome, but a few hours to get there and hike from Ft. Collins won't be enough time. Not sure on areas immediately by Ft. Collins


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Poudre canyon highway is an incredible ride


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Wouldn't consider this something you'd do if you only have a couple hours to kill. Unless you're planning on just hiking around and not summitting.

    14 miles round trip at elevation is tough, first timers should probably start realllly early so they can get below the tree line before noon/early in the afternoon.

    Re: Rocky Mountain National Park

    There is a lake in the park that had the side of it busted out causing a flood. It cut a revine in the side of the mountain and there are huge boulders spread in the revine from the lake to the bottom land. You can hike the trail up to the lake, or go directly up the boulders if you are looking for a challenge and workout.

    I think it was called Lawn Lake, but I might be wrong.

    Re: Rocky Mountain National Park

    Poudre and Red Feather Lakes are closer to Fort Collins. RMNP is a couple hours away. Lots of stuff up in the Poudre.

    Also go to Funkwerks brewery. Its better, smaller and they serve cheese.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
