Horsetooth Reservoir, Fort Collins, Colorado USA

Horsetooth Reservoir is a sizeable lake just west of Fort Collins in Colorado. Access is fairly straightforward (particularly on the north and east sides), making it a nice spot for a quick nature getaway if you're looking to get out of Fort Collins but you're not looking to do any hiking.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Travel information

Google will get you to the reservoir, but be warned that parking requires a pass (although I've parked many times and never been "caught"). There are great views of the reservoir from the West, but that requires entering Lory State Park, which has an entrance fee. The first shot (of the sunrise) was taken from the bridge on the north edge of the reservoir. There's no parking nearby, but I just stopped on the shoulder of the bridge given the time of day. Traffic is low here, so you can probably get away with that approach as long as you're not camped out for too long. The second shot (at night with the star trails) was taken on the eastern edge facing west. There are plenty of pull-offs for parking along the eastern road (County Road 23).
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.
