Monthly TRAIL CONDITION report – October 2019

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. 

Kodak Trailhead – The Trailhead is scheduled to be sealed on October 7th.  This is a moving schedule based on other projects and weather.  Sealing should take a day followed later in the month with striping.  The Trail will remain open, but users should exercise caution.  

Along highway 257 in Windsor – A project to address the buckling situation along the Trail from the highway 257 crossing to Water Valley is planned.  A schedule has not been finalized but this project may start in October.  A separate trail alert will be sent when more information is available.   

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.

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, with high alert at this high-speed highway.  Assume cars will not stop.  Do not let the crossing lights give you a false sense of security. 

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.

New Trail Open – The new section of the Sheep Draw Trail is now open.  The Sheep Draw Trail intersects with the Poudre Trail at 59th Ave. in Greeley.  The Trail now goes from this intersection to 20th Street going under 4th Street, 10th Street and 71st Ave.; approximately 4 miles.  Check it out for a new riding experience. 

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 970-336-4044;, and leave a message with the information.  It is also helpful if you would leave your contact information, should the Trail Manager need clarification.
