The weather forecast called for sunny skies and 50+ degree high temps, making it a nice day for a social hike. So John, Ryan, and I headed to Poudre Canyon about 9 miles out of Fort Collins for a little jaunt up to the base of Greyrock Mountain. The trail was a bit rocky and icy in sections and the winds were really howling, but the views of the evergreen-treed gulch and mountains were well worth the 3-hour, 5.9-mile round-trip trek on the Greyrock National Recreation Trail. When the weather is a little warmer, Greyrock is a hotspot for rock climbing. Click here for more photos.
