According to The Know, Long View Trail is  a 4.4-mile paved trail that will run east of Taft Ave. in Loveland (Sheilds St. in Fort Collins) north of 57th St., and will stretch up into Fort Collins. The trail will open Saturday, August 18, with a ribbon-cutting celebration.

Larimer County says the trail was created as a 'safe alternative to walking or biking along busy roads in the beautiful setting of protected farmland.'

'The trail will also connect Loveland's Sunset Vista Natural Area and Larimer County's Long View Farm Open Space.' [Source: Larimer County]
