The new mtb trail, On the Rocks, located at Bobcat Ridge is now under construction. Fort Collins Natural Areas Trail Crew has done the preliminary work and now volunteer crews will be working most weekends to get it completed by the end of the year. The trail was officially proposed to the Fort Collins Natural Areas way back on March 3, 2014. The expert level, multi-use trail, within the Bobcat Ridge Natural Area, above Mahoney Park will link Ginny trail with Power Line trail.

Project Description: On the Rocks will give visitors stunning views, unique experiences, and create a 1- to 1.5-mile loop on the west side of Bobcat Ridge. This advanced- and expert-level trail will take users over, through and around large unique rock surfaces and formations, creating a truly one-of-a-kind trail segment in Colorado’s Northern Front Range region.
