Drove in for about 30 miles and it started to snow. Not wanting to get stuck in the mountains and being unfamiliar with the road we turned around and drove back out. What we saw was nice and will have to go again
No matter what season.... this is always a good place to go spend time. I've seen sheep along the hillside. The time I saw the seaman fire coming down the side of the canyon wasn't cool though.
I pretty much always stop at the Mishawaka...More
The Cache la Poudre River is so different each season. It roars in the spring with snowmelt, offering great whitewater rafting and kayaking, and in the summer there are many campgrounds, picnic areas and trout fishing spots to enjoy. Yes, it's busy on weekends, so...More

Most of the pull offs going up the Canyon are free. There are probably Day fee picnic areas and any camping overnight is usually State owned and will most likely require a fee. All fees are very reasonable. The best time to visit this Canyon is May through the late fall. Fall will have the most spectacular colors.
The route up would be through Fort Collins and then toward Cameron Pass.

In my opinion, the Poudre is an easier drive. Not like the Big Thompson or Rocky Mountain National Park. Yes, it is a 2 lane road. I think it is less stressful. You often see Hummingbirds. Hopefully, it works for you.
