This wide, level, paved trail near the northern city limit of Fort Collins follows the Cache la Poudre River. (The French name, meaning “where the powder is hidden,” refers to the gunpowder early trappers hid prior to a snowstorm.) The Poudre River Trail is well-suited for anyone who enjoys the outdoors, from kids and grandparents to joggers and folks in wheelchairs. Environments vary along the trail, which begins at Shields Street and heads southeast, ending at Colorado State University’s Environmental Learning Center (open to the public) near East Drake Road. The trail’s newest 1.75-mile addition continues west from Shields Street. From the Shields Street parking area, in the trail’s first mile cottonwood and Russian olive branches frame grand views of the foothills to the west. During July and August, downy cottonwood seeds drift through the air like summer’s snowflakes. Encourage youngsters to gather the airy piles of seeds collected around clumps of grass and feel the softness against their faces. Fall color walks are ideal here.
