Walking to CSU

Walking is the easiest and cheapest solution for getting to CSU. It's a perfect way to enjoy the beauty and fresh air of scenic Fort Collins and a great way to spend a crisp Spring or Fall morning. In addition to being environmentally friendly, a fifteen or more minute walk is also a great way to stay healthy and reach your target heart rate.

Health Benefits

Walking can benefit your physical and psychological health in many ways. Regular walkers have less incidence of cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other diseases. They tend to live longer and enjoy mental health and spiritual benefits.


There are many scenic trails available throughout Fort Collins which can lead you to CSU from just about anywhere in town. The trails are maintained year round and snow is removed from the trails during winter months. Enjoying the beautiful scenery on your way to campus can be a great way to relax and can help to improve your general mood.
