A temporary closure due to construction will begin Oct. 17 at the parking area at Lions Open Space in Larimer County.

Lions Open Space is home to the westernmost portion of the Poudre River Trail, which continues west as the Pleasant Valley Trail.

Pleasant Valley Trail will remain open during construction, but has been rerouted away from Cache la Poudre River.

Visitors can access Lions Open Space from the trail during the construction. Fishing will also be open.

The Lions Open Space parking area is expected to reopen Nov. 25.

Improvements to the area include boulder installation and stabilization of the bank of the Poudre River and repairs to a 20-foot section of the Pleasant Valley Trail after previous flooding events.
