The “A” is an iconic landmark of Fort Collins and a popular hike for locals. The hike is 4.1 miles out and back with about a 565 ft. elevation gain. The “A” stands for Aggies…when CSU was founded in 1870, it was called Colorado Agricultural College. When you get to the “A”, you have a spectacular view. HERE is where you can find more information about the hike.
