New Trail Connects to Mariana Butte

Post Date:07/13/2017 12:19 PM

This new trail offers the community a new unique experience and incredible views of the Mariana Butte Golf Course and surrounding area.

The Mariana Butte Trail System including the new Hidden Hogback trail were constructed over the last two years and provide over 1.25 miles of natural-surface hiking trails with excellent wildlife viewing opportunities and incredible panoramic views.  The trail is open daily from sunrise to sunset.  To best preserve the landscape, hiking is limited to the established trail and bikes are prohibited.  Parking, restrooms and concessions are available at the Mariana Butte Clubhouse. More information:

The new sustainable trails have been constructed 100 percent by volunteers.  The Colorado Addicted Trail Builders Society (CATS) Loveland/Fort Collins Chapter is a non-profit organization dedicated to trail construction in Northern Colorado.  These volunteers provide quality work at public sites at no cost. CATS welcomes new volunteers and will provide applicable training. More information: or contact

A community ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for 6:00pm on Thursday, July 20th for the Hidden Hogback Trail at Rossum Drive, just south of the Big Thompson River.  Parking is available at Oxbow Natural Area for the event and the public is invited to come hike this new community trail.
