The Town of Windsor is scheduled to complete the extension of the Colorado Boulevard Trail and open the trail, along County Road 13/Colorado Boulevard and Highway 392, Friday, October 22. The Colorado Boulevard Trail is a half-mile hiking and biking trail adding to Windsor’s 40 plus miles of trails and over 400 acres of open space. Windsor Mayor Paul Rennemeyer and Town Manager Shane Hale are scheduled to speak at the opening ceremony.
“Increasing options for non-motorized access to outdoor spaces and giving our residents options to enjoy nature in Windsor is a priority for us,” said Wade Willis, manager of Windsor’s Open Space and Trails. “This trail and the bridge over the Poudre River is one of the major pieces adding to our robust trail system. The trail and the bridge are a vital connection for our community and neighborhoods along Colorado Blvd.”
The completion of the Colorado Boulevard Trail extension and the bridge over the Poudre River supports Windsor’s efforts to create a low-stress walk and bicycle network giving residents additional access to outdoor recreation, schools, retail, restaurants and downtown. This section also develops two new loops, a three mile or four mile depending on the route, utilizing the trails at Kyger Open Space and along the Poudre River.
The ceremony will be held at 4:00 p.m. on the new Poudre River Bridge. Parking will be available at the Poudre Trail Head at County Rd. 13/Colorado Blvd., and near the Poudre Trail or along River West Drive.
