Applewood Estates receives raw water from the Poudre River, one of the nation's longest undammed rivers. The water runs from the snowmelt in the spring, saturating the pastures and orchards with clean Colorado Mountain river water. Several times a month, the water flows around the property in a green ditch, surrounding the perimeter like a mirrored ribbon, moving around corners and under trees.
Backing up to the bridal path, you can ride either your horse or bike on the trail system that creatively borders the properties in the neighborhood. A pond, park, and riding arena are part of the neighborhood HOA. Just a 10-minute bike ride to downtown Ft. Collins, a 20-minute drive to downtown Loveland and a 40-minute drive to Boulder.
