Horse Lake Reserve

This 1,700-acre reserve, purchased by the Land Trust in 2006 and 2008, has become a community treasure. People can hike for miles on trails that connect the city’s back door to the mountains, and mule deer will always have a winter haven. Originally, we planned to sell to a conservation buyer and restrict development with a conservation easement that would still allow public access on the perimeter of the property. We now have an incredible opportunity to retain full ownership and to secure funding for its ongoing management as a natural park, ensuring that the entire property will be accessible to the public.
