Awesome June Rafting Trip on the Cache La Poudre River
Family of 4 with 2 teenagers. It was our first time rafting and it was awesome. We went for the lesser intense of the two options and it was a rush. If it's sunny I recommend sunglasses with a band to keep the secure. I also highly recommend some hiking pants. You WILL get wet. The river was a little high so we took two shorter passes rather than a longer one because of the bridge.

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.
