Description

Towers is a wide, smooth service road. It's not technical, but has an aggressive grade. Put in the work to climb from the Soderberg Open Space parking lot and access many more trails at Horsetooth Mountain Park! Towers offers some fantastic views of both Horsetooth Reservoir and the city of Fort Collins to the East. There are plenty of trees for shade.

Near the top, there's a spur (South) to access the northern towers. If you stay on the main trail, it will make its way to the southern towers. Once at the top, there are some spectacular views!
