Recently returned to the Ft. Collins area for my annual trip. I believe I previously posted some photos and trail report a couple years back from the Red Mountain Open Space. Adjacent to RMOS is The Soapstone Prairie Open Space. Combined they make up 55,000 acres of space 45 minutes north of Ft. Collins, right on the WY border. I have yet to see another trail user there when I visit. They have miles o interconnecting trails. Not necessarily killer single track, but for views and solitude they are hard to beat.
I also hit the Blue Sky trail right outside of FoCo with my daughter.

Yes, I yielded trail to this user.
