Beautiful views of the hogsbacks and mountains of the Front Range including the Bellvue Dome & the Poudre River just minutes from downtown Fort Collins.

Bingham Hill Park sits on the northern terminus of the main hogsback/ridgeline that makes up the eastern wall of the Horsetooth Reservoir, just off the eponymously named Bingham Hill Road and minutes from downtown Fort Collins.

From the top you look out over the Front Range, The Poudre River, Arthur's Rock, and the Bellvue Dome. There's excellent parking and a great picnic area, and the telephone pole and fence makes for a convenient place to toss up a hammock.
