Devil's Backbone Management Plan

The foothills between the Devil's Backbone and Horsetooth Mountain Park have been a priority for natural resource protection by the Open Lands Program. The Devil's Backbone Open Space was acquired in several phases beginning in 1998 with the intent to protect the foothills mountain backdrop between Ft. Collins and Loveland, the Devil's Backbone rock outcrop, native and rare vegetation, wildlife populations and to provide non-motorized outdoor recreational opportunities.
