 Information and Updates – 09/26/13

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with the City of Fort Collins is providing residents of Storm Mountain access to Power Line Trail via the Bobcat Ridge Natural Area.  This area will only be accessible with specialized vehicles designed to handle the extremely rough terrain or by horseback or hiking in.

Storm Mountain residents may obtain credentials for this access at the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office at 2501 Midpoint Drive in Fort Collins Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. In addition, credentials will be available on Saturday, September 28 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the entrance to the Bobcat Ridge Natural area.  A photo id with a current address on Storm Mountain or a photo id and proof of residency (utility bill, tax statements, etc.) must be presented to be issued credentials.
Previously issued credentials for Storm Mountain will be valid for the new route. Access via Buckhorn Road to Forest Service Road 153 will continue to be available to residents as well.
Residents attempting to get back to their homes will encounter many unknown hazards and will enter at their own risk.  The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office cannot guarantee the safety of residents who enter this area or guarantee that deputies will be available to provide assistance if needed.
Regular patrols are being conducted including patrols by the Larimer County Sheriff’s Posse in the area. Individuals without credentials will be cited.  Residents in the closed areas who see people without credentials are asked to contact the Larimer County Sheriff’s office at 970-416-1985.
