Trail System Status

Fort Collins Trail Although we attempt to keep the status of the trails updated for your convenience, sometimes closures happen quickly for safety concerns, and may not be updated on this page.

When you come upon barricades, please obey the detours. This can be an inconvenience but they are in place for your safety. Always be aware of the possibility of high water along the river and use caution when traveling along the trail at underpasses.

Reminder: The Poudre River and Spring Creek can flood the trails during a heavy rain. Please be aware of low areas and underpasses on the trails during a rain event. The Parks staff watches for any flooding and will post warnings and detours in areas of concern as soon as is possible, but individuals need to be aware and prepared to use alternate routes in case of flooding. Please obey the detours as they are in place for your safety.
