A two-mile section of concrete trail, expected to be completed this September, will connect 35 miles of trail in Fort Collins to 18 miles of trail in Loveland. The connection is part of the Colorado Front Range Trail and will be available for bicyclist and pedestrian users. The two-mile connection is expected to cost $1.2 million dollars, which includes $450,000 of grant funding from the Colorado Department of Transportation and $350,000 of funding from the Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s State Trails Program.
The project, which began in 2002, is a partnership between the City of Fort Collins, Loveland, and Larimer County. This project is part of the North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Organization long-range plans for greater regional trail connectivity in Northern Colorado.
