Loveland's newest natural area is a beautiful place for a quick run or walk, both by yourself or with friends and family.

Prairie Ridge Natural Area is located at 6400 N Wilson Ave in northwest Loveland, just northwest of 57th St. and Wilson Ave. The area has a 2.4-mile, multi-use surface trail system, including a .8 mile track that connects Prairie Ridge with the Coyote Ridge Natural Area. The area also boasts a brand new (and very clean) restroom and a 36-car parking lot.

While enjoying the site, all visitors are required to abide by the rules from the City of Loveland:

  • No dogs allowed
  • No e-bikes allowed
  • Open sunrise to sunset
  • Parking allowed in designated areas only
  • No large vehicle parking (horse trailer parking available one mile north at Coyote Ridge Natural Area)
  • Stay on trail to protect our natural resources
  • Collecting, removing, destroying or defacing any natural or man-made objects is prohibited
