Larimer County Natural Resources is bringing back the public tour of Chimney Hollow Open Space due to overwhelming popularity. If you missed this field trip opportunity, you have two more chances this summer.

The next tours scheduled are Saturday, July 21 and August 23, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

So what is this tour all about?

The field trip will include an easy, round-trip walk of 0.5 mile for the whole group. After learning about the Windy Gap Firming Project’s proposed Chimney Hollow Reservoir and the Chimney Hollow property, the group will split up, and one group will have an opportunity to hike farther, and the other group will receive a historical interpretive tour of the property.  The longer hike will be an additional 1.5 miles and is rated as moderate. This hike will give a sense of what the recreational amenities may become following a public management planning process.
