The final connection project in Fort Collins for the Poudre River Trail is a section that runs west of Arapaho Bend Natural Area and connects to the existing trail near CSU’s Environmental Learning Center. 

City staff are currently exploring potential alignments to complete this final connection point. Timeline for construction is expected to occur no later spring 2025. 

Please note: At this time, paved trail access ends on the northwest side Rigden Reservoir. Please be respectful of property boundaries and do not trespass into unpaved trail space.
