A connection from Tom Watson Park to the Cottontail Trail is planned for construction in 2012 or 2013, as part of the Longmont-to-Boulder Trail Project. This is an especially critical connection because it safely crosses the busy 4-lane Hwy 119.
A new trail is scheduled for construction in 2013 as part of the Longmont-to-Boulder (LoBo) Trail.

The Trail Around Boulder is a 37 mile loop trail encircling the City of Boulder, Colorado, all on dirt. It passes through a wide variety of landscape and wildlife habitat, giving visitors a great tour of the ecological diversity of this beautiful area.
The Trail Around Boulder utilizes mostly existing trails, with only 7 new trail miles needed to complete the loop. Virtually all the connections are either already planned for construction, trivial to complete, or have been planned for many years but never built. Apart from road crossings and one railroad crossing, all the land needed to complete the Trail Around Boulder is already owned by the City.
The Trail Around Boulder is being promoted by the Boulder Area Trails Coalition, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that promotes environmentally responsible, multi-use trails for everyone: hikers, runners, equestrians, mountain bikers, dog walkers, bird watchers, climbers, and YOU!
