  • West of the proposed I-25 underpass to the existing trail at Arapaho Bend Natural Area. This will include construction of a new trailhead parking lot on Strauss Cabin Road.
  • West of Rigden Reservoir, continuing north of the railroad tracks, connecting to the existing trail at CSU’s Environmental Learning Center.
