Starting next week, there will be 5.5 miles of new trails to explore in Boulder County.

The Open Sky Loop trail near Lagerman Reservoir will open to the public after a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. on Monday.

The trail gives visitors a view of the newly-expanded Lagerman Agricultural Preserve, which encompasses 659 acres west of Longmont.

Boulder County Parks and Open Space says a future expansion to the south will add another trail to the preserve.
