The Greyrock Trail system just off the Poudre Canyon Highway was designed in the 1930s by the New Deal Program the Civilian Conservation Corps and today remains a very popular trail due largely to its close proximity to Fort Collins. From the trailhead, the Greyrock Trail rises gently for more about 0.75 miles before splitting into a longer, but less strenuous trail on the left (the Greyrock Meadows Trail) or following the Greyrock Trail to the right where after 1.75 miles it joins back with the Greyrock Meadows Trail before the last 0.75mi climb to the summit of Greyrock Mountain (7,613ft elevation). Right after the junction of the two trails is also the western terminus of the primitive Wintersteen Trail that connects this area to the Seaman Reservoir to the east. Campsites and campfires must be at least 200ft from the trail or any water in this area.
