River, streams, trails, and peaks. Terrific place to drive and hike. Hydrate while hiking and carry snacks. Great place for a picnic.

I am a repeat visitor to this scenic drive. I have driven here many times and on one memorable occasion spent the night solo camping after arriving at a secluded spot on my bicycle!

Colorado's mountains and streams always take your breath away and Cache La Poudre River Canyon is no exception.

Before you do this drive or bike ride, I strongly recommend you tell friends where you are going what color clothes you will be wearing and such details - especially if you are thinking solo. This is just a precaution. The mountain sides are steep and rugged.

On the fun side minimally Google this place; the Colorado State University Library and the Ft Collins Public Library offer books you might want to read before doing the canyon.

I love going up poudre canyon along the river. There are many side roads, keep trails, and hiking areas where you won't see anyone else. Great fishing, some camping, but mainly it's not crowded especially during the week unlike boulder canyon. There's great white water rafting...but the main attraction is that you can get lost and enjoy nature and photography by yourself if you want to. There's moose, bear, mountain lion, even wolves up near walden. So be careful. The river is beautiful with some nice small falls and rapids. Up the canyon is Mishawaka falls...pretty and also a great venue for summer concerts.

The Poudre River is a beautiful place to fish and picnic near. It offers many different spots to stop and some have facilities. The river was running a little low, but still nice.

There are many trail heads to choose from and several activities to enjoy along the river in Larimer and Weld counties. Check the Fort Collins Natural Areas website to see if they are offering a program (or to check if sections are closed for repair or flooding). Wade the River is one that no one with kids should miss although I met some young adults that stayed for hours. The only downside is that the trail near Lee Maritnez is very crowded on summer weekends with bicyclists (free bikes available from the Fort Collins bike library), dog walkers, inline skaters and water lovers enjoying tubing, swimming, and fly fishing. Trail heads at Lions Den in LaPorte, at Prospect or Timberline in Fort Collins or those in Weld County are less crowded. Since this trail is plowed, it is an excellent winter walking path (or bicycling for the hardy).
