Natural Areas Trail Conditions

Natural Area trails are unpaved, soft surface trails. When trails are wet and muddy, they are closed to prevent resource damage. Closures are posted here and at the trailheads. Rangers monitor conditions at closed trails daily, and reopen as soon as conditions allow. To learn more, call a ranger, 970-416-2147. Paved trails such as the Spring Creek Trail, Mason Trail and Poudre River Trail are managed by City of Fort Collins Parks, check Parks' Trail Status page for paved trail conditions.
