Timnath is a quaint agricultural community founded in 1882, located just southeast of Fort Collins, approximately one-half mile east of I-25 at Harmony Road. It sits on a small bluff just east of the Cache la Poudre River; the surrounding farmlands were used primarily for potatoes, alfalfa, corn, sugar beets and raising cattle. In recent years, Timnath has experienced unprecedented growth with a significant increase in population from 625 in 2010, to 7,659 in 2022. The growth of Fort Collins to the west and Windsor to the south has primed the community for future development. Timnath offers available land and affordable prices, making it attractive for both commercial and residential real estate. In recent years Timnath has seen the addition of a Costco, a new UC Health outpost, a handful of new businesses and dining, and on the near horizon is a Top Golf recreational facility and a major flooring supply retail outlet.
Throughout its history, Timnath has retained the characteristics people envision when they think of “small town America.” Despite experiencing unprecedented growth in recent years, the town has grown fast yet remains true to its rural roots. Timnath consists of primarily single-family homes and is a low-density community. The town protects open space and parkland, particularly near the Poudre River and Timnath Reservoir, a popular destination for fishing and bird watching. Timnath’s small downtown consists of Main Street, which is lined with historic buildings, a historic church, local shops, and a post office. You'll also find the friendly Timnath Beerwerks, where you can enjoy local craft brews, fellowship, and a rotation of food trucks year-round. The area is served by the Poudre School District.
