Construction crews broke ground in July on a new concrete trail that will connect Loveland and Fort Collins and each city’s extensive paved trail networks.

The 2-mile Colorado Front Range Trail – Loveland to Fort Collins Connection will be located between Lemay Avenue and Timberline Road on the east side of the cities. From south to north, it will extend from Loveland’s Recreation Trail just west of Boyd Lake State Park to the City of Fort Collins’ Fossil Creek Trail at Carpenter Road. An underpass already exists under Carpenter Road in anticipation of this new trail.
