  • Our journey today led us through the winding road along side the river. The snow covered areas with break through areas of running water was simply beautiful. Well worth the drive!  more »
  • I've spent many days throughout the years picnicking, and hiking on the Poudre. I'm a native of Fort Collins so the Poudre was the go-to place. Beautiful river, well-maintained picnic areas.  more »
