Walking Fort Collins

City Plan Walking Principle

The City of Fort Collins will support walking as a safe, easy and convenient travel option for all ages and abilities by building a connected network of sidewalks, paths, and trails. (see City Plan for more information).

Benefits of Walking



Walking is one of the healthiest activities for all ages and abilities. Walking for 30 minutes a day or more on most days of the week is a great way to improve or maintain your overall health. Some of the benefits include:

  • increased cardiovascular and pulmonary (heart and lung) fitness
  • reduced risk of heart disease and stroke
  • management of conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes
  • stronger bones and improved balance
  • increased muscle strength and endurance
  • reduced body fat.



Walking builds community. It's a great way to meet neighbors and get to know your City. Some ideas to make your walk more social include:

  • Schedule a regular family walk
  • Look for the self-guided nature walks that have been set up in many parks.
  • Ask neighbors or friends if they would like to join you on your walks.
  • Think of starting a walking group



Everyone is a pedestrian, even for parts of a trip.  Walking to the bus, walking from your car to the store, walking to get the mail.  This is true for people in wheelchairs, people on foot, or people being pushed by others. Walking is an activity shared by all of us and should be easy and fun to do for everyone.
