Although there is still fire damage in the lower regions, the drive up the Poudre River is still relaxing and awe-inspiring. Lots of pullouts for stopping to take pictures. Crowded in the warm months. Great places for hiking, picnicking, back country skiing and fishing. Not...More
My husband brought me up the canyon after a stressful week at work. It was a beautiful fall day with bright sunshine and golden leaves. There was little traffic on the hour’s drive up from Ft. Collins. We made several stops along the river for...More

Most of the pull offs going up the Canyon are free. There are probably Day fee picnic areas and any camping overnight is usually State owned and will most likely require a fee.
