Monthly TRAIL CONDITION Report – August 2021

 Colorado Blvd. (CR13)

  • On the west side of Colo. Blvd. (CR13) a short detour is in place to go around a work site necessary for the installation of a new pedestrian bridge over the river. This wooden detour will be removed in the next week.  The new bridge will be closed until the construction of the new trail from the Poudre Trail to Hwy 392 is complete. 
  • On the east side of Colo. Blvd. (CR13), pipeline work is taking place. Please proceed with caution when traveling through this section.

Detour at Raindance The detour is located 1 mile east of Colorado Blvd. and 1/2 mile west of Eastman Park.  The detour follows a gravel utility road and is rough, uneven, and can be muddy.  Dismounting is recommended.  The detour passes through private property so please stay on the road.  For your safety, and out of respect for private property owners that allow the Poudre Trail to pass through their property, do not go around signs and barriers.  The detour is in place to install safety tunnels along the new Raindance Golf Course.  Construction at this location is expected to last eight weeks.   

Poudre Ponds The section of the Poudre Trail between 35th Ave. and 25th Ave. in Greeley is now open.  For your safety, please stay on the trail as work continues on the Poudre Ponds Recreational Fishery.  A completion date for the ponds is not available at this time. 

East of 83rd Ave. Drainage repair is scheduled in August for a short section of the trail east of 83rd Ave.  The work is expected to take two days.  A street detour will be in place.     

Mowing - Mowers will yield to pedestrians and bicyclists, but please allow time for the operator to see you first and shut down the spinning blades before passing mowing equipment.  Natural areas are managed to maintain and strengthen non-irrigated native grass species.  This practice is different from neighborhood park settings.

If you require Emergency Help, call 911 and report the issue along with the information on the nearest trail marker. This will help emergency responders locate you.  For non-emergency situations or if you see something on the trail that needs attention, call or e-mail the trail office at 970-381-6250;, and leave a message with the information.  It is helpful if you provide your contact information, should the Trail Manager need clarification.
