When a 10-foot-wide ribbon of smooth concrete unrolls next summer across 4 ½ miles of prairie between Loveland and Fort Collins, a quiet revolution in Northern Colorado transportation takes a huge stride forward.
The Long View Trail will follow a route just east of Larimer County Road 17, the two-lane blacktop also known as North Taft Avenue in Loveland and South Shields Street in Fort Collins. Summer’s opening will mark a second connection linking the two cities’ 53 miles of paved trails and offer the potential for change that would benefit all the region’s residents.
The two regional trail links reflect the investment that residents of Loveland, Fort Collins and Larimer County have made in development of paved trails and preservation of open space in the region.
