Poudre Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Cache La Poudre River carves a deep runnel, south to north, through Poudre Canyon. Much of the roadside land here is private, but a small pullout allows for views of the rushing leaps and gushing cascades at Poudre Falls.

The pullout and overlook for Poudre Falls is marked by a small sign at the side of the highway, between Chambers Lake to the south and Spencer Heights to the north. Below the road, the Cache La Poudre River flows through a narrow gorge, tumbling around boulders and sliding over the rocky riverbed in three long leaps. Social trails allow for a closer look of the falls and the steep-sided west wall of the canyon. Take special care if crossing the highway here, and keep pets and children close at hand."
