Th Cache La Poudre Drive is something anyone visiting the Fort Collins area should do. The drive follows the river and there are plenty of places where you can stop and enjoy the wonderful views. Plan on the drive taking some time as the roads can be a little narrow and quite curvy. There are several hikes along the way... More

Such a beautiful river with lots of stops along the way. Little hikes and fishing areas surround the river. And great river rafting and paddle boarding. The view of the foothills surrounding you is absolutely awing!

The drive through the Cache La Poudre River basin is one not to be missed. The narrow road winds through steep rock cliffs dotted with trees and shrubs, then through steep rolling hills both tree covered and barren. It is beautiful. The ride through the canyon takes a couple of hours, but is well worth the time.

Driving from Fort Collins north, you enter the Poudre Canyon, with the beautiful Poudre River. It has steep sections which provide opportunities for taking pictures of the roaring river. Rafting is popular along this stretch. Several pull offs provide options for picnics, fishing and enjoying the scenery.

This is a must for anyone and everyone! From fly fishing to floating in a tube anyone can enjoy themselves! Rafting is offered - and recommended- plenty if pull off places and parking available along the route.

50 miles west of a Fort Collins up highway 14 is one of the best hikes in Colorado I've been on. Beautiful river sounds and views, Talus slopes, and gentle incline to boot!! I've hiked Colorado trails all my life, and this is one of the prettiest hikes I've done. Highly recommended!

I have been running the Poudre for 12 years now and I still look forward to every trip to it as much as the first one. It has been through floods and fires and always returns to it's majestic beauty. Would be happy to spend the rest of my life here.

We stayed in a beautiful cabin (another review) in May of 2014. Even during a rainy week, the canyon was BEAUTIFUL! The drive along twisting roads along the river was exhilarating and relaxing all at the same time. The drive up into the canyon past Mishawaka Amphitheater into Rustic is positively stunning. We hiked a short distance from the Hewlett-Gulch... More
