This canyon is amazing for a drive. Colorado Highway 14 goes through the canyon from Ted's Place up over Cameron Pass on over to Walden. There are many places to stop and view the river and wildlife along the river. Great hiking trails in the Roosevelt National Park areas along the way. Also some good looking camping spots as well....

This gives you a perspective that we are not in control at all. Wind, Fire and Water can leave things changed in a very short amount of time.

Drove north on Rt 287 to Ted's Place. It's on the map but there are no signs. Apparently everybody knows where it is. You just turn left at the Shell Station. Puts you on CO14 going toward Steamboat. The first 20 miles should take your breath away. If it doesn't then you're already dead. At about 20 miles, there is... More

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.
