Island Grove Trailhead (UNDER CONSTRUCTION - Opening early summer 2021)
Funded by Quality of Life tax funds, the Island Grove trailhead will serve as a starting and stopping point at the current eastern reach of the regional Poudre River trail. The trailhead will feature a 30-car parking lot, ADA parking, restroom facilities, bike repair station, and public art. Construction is underway and is anticipated to be completed by early summer 2021.
McCloskey Natural Area Trailhead
Funded primarily by a State Trails grant from Colorado Parks & Wildlife, improvements to the McCloskey trailhead were completed in spring 2019. Remaining items that will complete the project include a port-a-let structure, seating and tables. Improvements are scheduled to be installed in late spring/summer 2021.
83rd Ave. Section - Sheep Draw Trail
Work will begin in late spring/early summer 2021 on a section of the Sheep Draw Trail under the 83rd Ave. bridge. This project has been in the planning and permitting stages for several years, and with final floodplain permitting completed the project is ready to begin. This project will complete the final missing link for the Sheep Draw Trail, and will connect existing trail sections at the Boomerang Ranch and Mountain Shadows neighborhoods. Some additional trail closures may occur during this project in the vicinity.
Signature Bluffs Ecosystem Improvement Project
The City has partnered with the Army Corps of Engineers to restore wetlands and upland areas at the Signature Bluffs Natural Area, in addition to construction of recreational boardwalks and soft-surface trails for public access. The trail sections and boardwalks were completed in early 2020, and work will continue on the restoration of the lands for the next few years.
