Mason Trail Description

The Mason Trail runs north–south through Fort Collins, paralleling McClellan Drive north of Horsetooth Road (CR 40) and the railroad tracks south of Horsetooth/CR 40. The trail is a nice alternative to motorized transport and links the city's business and industrial districts with parks and neighborhoods.

The north end of the Mason Trail intersects with the Spring Creek Trail. At the southern end it intersects with the Fossil Creek Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Park near the southern end of the trail at the end of Frontage Road (south of Cameron Dr.). You can also park at the cul du sac of Fossil Blvd (north along the trail from its southern endpoint). On-street parking is at the end of Troutman Parkway and Riva Ridge Drive. For information about parking on campus, visit CSU.
