LOVELAND – Outdoor enthusiasts will soon be able to enjoy a new trail at Devil’s Backbone Open Space thanks to the work of more than 60 volunteers.
The trail, which is scheduled to open in May, will be a multi-use trail for mountain bikers and equestrians.
Larimer County staff and volunteers constructed roughly 1,000 feet of trail on Saturday as part of the new Hidden Valley Trail being built in the open space west of Loveland. About half of 1.8 mile trail remains to be built.
The trial will run from the Devil’s Backbone Trailhead to the north end of the Wild Loop Trail, which will become hiking only.
The project is the first in a series of volunteer projects arranged for the 20th anniversary of the Help Preserve Open Spaces sales tax in 2016.
Volunteers for the project consisted of groups from Larimer County, Overland Mountain Bike Club, Colorado Addicted Trailbuilders Society, Team B.O.B, and Arizona State University Alumni Northern Colorado Club.
