Open without issues.


Visit Magpie Meander and you'll discover a wooded area with a small stream and pond. Its location adjacent to Soft Gold Park makes Magpie Meander ideal for a family picnic and easy nature exploration. There is an accessible fishing pier too. A natural surface trail connects to McMurry Natural Area and the Poudre Trail.

When you visit Magpie Meander look for its namesake the magpie, as well as great blue herons, red-tailed hawks, and downy woodpeckers. You might also see rabbits, squirrels, foxes, and mule deer, as well as painted turtles and plains garter snakes. What a lively place!
