Trails Damaged by Recent Rains
(May 12, 2015) Due to the recent heavy rains along the Front Range, Broomfield County trails have experienced excessive damage. Those that are in particularly poor condition are in the Broomfield County Commons, Lac Amora, Wildgrass, and Ridgeview areas.

Staff will be working on the trails to restore them to their previous condition. Staff estmates that it will take approximately two weeks to make the trails safe and usable until permanent repairs can be completed. This is a long process, and it is hoped that the situation can be rectified as soon as possible. Your patience is appreciated. 
In the meantime, please be aware that the trails are in poor condition and take extra caution when using them. Thank you. 
For questions or concerns, please contact Open Space at 303.438.6216 or by email.
