Monthly TRAIL CONDITION Report – January 2020

Entire Trail is open – In the event of an unexpected closure, signage will be placed before and after to notify trail users.  For your safety, do not go around signs and barricades.

Winter Conditions – For your safety, please practice good judgement when using the trail during winter months.  Trail crews will clear the trail as quickly as possible following a winter storm.   Slippery conditions may exist including snow, ice and black ice, especially during cycles of freeze and thaw.

Dirt road crossing – Approximately 1 mile west of Eastman Park in Windsor the trail crosses a dirt access road.  This road can be muddy or have deep ruts.  Please cross with caution.  Dismounting is recommended.

Highway 257 crossing. Use caution at all road crossings, be especially alert at this high-speed highway.  Assume cars will not stop.  Do not let the crossing lights give you a false sense of security.

East of the Kodak Bridge, at mile marker W-8.75, there is a detour where trail users will leave the concrete path for a very short distance, detouring around a flood damaged section.  The detour may be soft and muddy.  Please use caution.  Dismounting is recommended.

Between the Dog Park on F Street and 35th Ave. – A riverbank restoration and trail reconstruction project is scheduled to begin on or around January 21st.  The work will affect the Trail between Rover Run Dog Park at F Street and 35th Avenue in Greeley.   The Trail will be closed between these locations for the duration of the project.  For your safety, do not go around signs and barricades.  Recreational trail users are advised to use the dog park and/or 35th Avenue as turnaround locations. Commuters are advised to find the safest alternate route to avoid this closure.  This will be an extended closure, with expected completion in mid-April.
