From Fort Collins, we drove through the Poudre Canyon all the way to US 69 along the Cache La Poudre River and were amazed by its beauty!

Beautiful river canyon. If you are on a motorcycle this is a great motorcycle road with many twisties. There's plenty of places to stop and enjoy the river too.

The best way to enjoy this river is on it! The water is cold but the adventure is worth it and the paddling the river guides have you do warm you. This is a goreous river and it's surroundings.

Stunning river in one the most beautiful places on the planet. Plenty of camp sites and places to put a raft/kayak in. Plus enough places to eat/drink/relax.
