Wildflower Walking Tour
Knowledge of flowers provides us with a fuller enjoyment of our mountains, streams, and forests. No longer is appreciation of plant varieties relegated to botanists. Join Larimer County Naturalists to observe wildflowers with the help of plan field guides and learn more about what makes the habitat at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space special. See this popular open space in a new way and expand your knowledge and interest of wildflowers from basic color to propagation, wildlife food, plant survival and much more. Wildflower enthusiasts of all levels are welcome!

We'll hike along Horsetooth Falls Trail (moderate difficulty) towards the falls and go as far as time and the group's comfort level permits. Participants should plan to hike about 2 miles. Bring water and a notepad if you wish to take notes. You'll meet at the main trailhead for Horsetooth Mountain Open Space on County Road 38E.

Participants should bring:
Sun protection (sunglasses, hat, sunscreen)
Wear comfortable hiking/walking shoes (closed-toe recommended)
Insect repellant
Clothing appropriate for the weather
Backpack (to carry it all)

Weather dependent.
