Before You Go: Check Trail & Parking Conditions
- Natural Areas Trail Conditions webpage fcgov.com/naturalareas/status
- COTREX https://trails.colorado.gov/
The busiest times at natural areas are weekends, 9 a.m.- 5 p.m., so try visiting earlier or later, or on weekday mornings for the best chance at parking. Have an alternate destination in mind. When parking lots are full try another trailhead or come back another time. Avoid a parking ticket! Only park in designated spaces.
Accessibility at Soapstone Prairie
As a part of the feedback process for the Mountains to Plains Zone update, Natural Areas asked community consultants from the ARC of Larimer County and the City's Recreation ARO program to give feedback related to accessibility at Soapstone Prairie.
