Poudre Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Poudre Trail is an 11-mile pathway through much of the best that Fort Collins has to offer. It provides access to outdoor art, local history, natural areas, and, of course, the Poudre River. The many transportation options include wheelchairs, road bikes and mountain bikes, running and walking shoes, roller blades, skateboards, and horses.You can explore this riverside corridor in three sections, from southeast to downtown to northwest of the city.

Our adventure will begin at the southeast terminus, Colorado State University’s Environmental Learning Center (ELC).After a few miles of this wild and winding beginning, you’ll work your way along the north side of Fort Collins to Martinez Park. From this midpoint, the trail goes mostly to the west and somewhat to the north to end at Lyons Park, close to LaPorte."
