Written Directions

Start in Bellevue, CO and take N. Colorado Route 23 south. Follow this road up along the reservoir walls around Horsetooth. All exits to the Left will bring you back to Fort Collins.

Scenery

This road begins in the cute small town of Bellvue, and continues past a couple small farms to Horsetooth reservoir. The reservoir is beautiful with plenty of areas to pull off, hike, snack, or go for a swim when its warm.

Drive Enjoyment

Lots of sweeping curves and a couple slow speed corners along the dam walls. The road is hilly with three very steep hills spaced along the route. Asphalt is in good condition, and there is rarely any gravel on the road. There are two cattle grates on the north end of the reservoir, so slower speed are advised along those points.

Tourism Opportunities

This road is just a couple miles west of the city of Fort Collins. Great restaurants, parks, entertainment, and wonderful beer. There are no amenities directly on this road, but anything you need is not far away.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

This is a great short after work ride. Be careful early morning and around dusk, as there is plenty of wildlife in the area.

Just ran this last weekend. The only reason for the lower rating, ... Cars. This is a heavily trafficked area with people escaping to the reservoir for summer pleasures. Great route to add to many others in the area

This is a good ride, I like weekdays or evenings because of traffic around the lake.
