Trail Advocacy – Cathy Fromme to Coyote Ridge – CONCEPTUAL

Conceptual trail is in RED; Existing trails are in BLACK

Agency/Trail System:  Fort Collins Natural Areas & Larimer County Solid Waste

Status:  Proposed in 2017 – awaiting decision through Fort Collins Natural Areas Fossil Creek Management Plan update.

Timeline:  Unknown

Estimated Mileage as Proposed:  3 ½

Targeted Ability Level:  Beginner, multi-use

Project Description:  This trail would provide a much-needed connection from the existing Fort Collins paved recreation trail system to the extensive natural-surface foothills trail system.  It would allow direct trail access to Coyote Ridge Natural Area, Rim Rock Trail, Blue Sky Trail, Indian Summer Trail, Devil’s Backbone Open Space, Horsetooth Mountain Open Space and Lory State Park.  The trail as proposed would intersect with the Fossil Creek Trail on the west side of Cathy Fromme Natural Area, travel south along this property’s western boundary, circle to the west of the Larimer County Landfill, terminating where it intersects with Coyote Ridge Trail.
