“Great drive any time of year”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We have only visited it in the winter, which is the "off" season, but it is a rugged and beautiful drive. You can walk out on the iced river.

“Something For Everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

The Poudre is great if you just want to take a scenic drive or if extreme adventure is more your flavor. And it is worth a visit any time of the year. Sure it can be a bit cold in the winter but you wont have to fight the traffic or the crowds.

Please leave it better than you find it. :)

“Don't miss the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Great Colorado river. The Canyon west of Fort Collins is a great drive. Lots of fishing spots along the way. Its fun to see the rafts and kayaks in the late spring and summer. Drive all the way up to Cameron pass for good hiking. Take the turn down to Long Draw Reservoir and access to the North side of Rocky Mountain National Park and good hiking trails, or continue your drive west into North Park. Great fall colors along this drive

Everything about this area is just beautiful! Grab a lunch from town and sit by the river and enjoy the sounds of nature!
