The Long View Corridor (North Taft Avenue in Loveland, South Shields Street in Fort Collins) has been a longtime conservation and recreation priority for Loveland, Fort Collins and Larimer County. This corridor serves as a community separator between Loveland and Fort Collins and is defined by working farmland and public land.
The trail will be a 4.4-mile long concrete, multi-use, non-motorized trail connecting western Loveland and Fort Collins through five existing open spaces and natural areas. The Natural Areas in Fort Collins that will be accessible from this trail include Colina Mariposa and Hazaleus. The trail will also connect Loveland's Sunset Vista Natural Area and Larimer County's Long View Corridor Open Space. These public lands are used for growing local food and provide valuable wildlife habitat. The trail will provide a safe alternative to walking or bike riding busy North Taft Avenue/South Shields Street in the beautiful setting of protected farmland.
