Project Background

As part of the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan, a network of trails was envisioned through the community of Niwot and to connect the communities of Longmont and Boulder. A number of small parcels and trail segments were created as various subdivisions developed.

In 2006, the Niwot Trails Master Plan was adopted by the Board of County Commissioners. This plan provided guidance for completion of the Niwot Trails and LOBO Regional Trail. Since the completion of the plan, the Dry Creek Loop and the LOBO Regional Trails were constructed providing a comprehensive network of trails within Niwot and connecting to surrounding communities.
