Natural Areas & Trails

Greeley has more than 1,000 acres of natural areas and over 30 miles of trails waiting for you to explore.

Greeley’s natural areas are places where visitors can connect to nature in an up close and personal way. Spend the day on a bike touring the Poudre trail. Watch birds and deer along the river. Stroll through a quiet cottonwood forest with your best two or four-legged friends.

The city’s natural areas are not just a great place for residents to exercise and unwind. Natural areas provide important habitat for local wildlife, assist in improving water quality, and increased resilience to floods. These “ecosystem services” make natural areas a community asset we can all value.

Enjoy Greeley’s natural areas & trails today – they are always in season.
