A section of Foothills Trail, between Blair Bridge and the Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center underpass, will close temporarily from July 29-Aug. 26 due to necessary utility work that is part of a flood mitigation project underway in the northeastern portion of Garden of the Gods Park.
During the closure, a new sanitary sewer pipe will be installed through an underground boring process, and a new 20-foot deep manhole to connect the pipe will be constructed adjacent to Foothills Trail. The trail will reopen upon completion of the pipe installation. Additional temporary trail closures may be required throughout the project, which is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
There will not be a posted detour for this trail closure.
