Join Water Education Colorado, the Poudre Heritage Alliance, and the Coalition for the Poudre River Watershed on May 24 or May 25 to learn about the various uses and benefits of the Cache La Poudre River. Explore this waterway by bicycle along with citizen leaders, volunteers, scientists, planners and water managers.|
This roughly 9-mile route will begin at the Watson Lake parking area in Bellvue, northwest of Fort Collins’ city center. We’ll then travel east along the Poudre River Trail, stopping at several points of interest along the way. We’ll continue along the trail until just past Lincoln Ave. and then we’ll double back to the New Belgium Brewery, the final stop of the tour. *Note: The bike tour route is not round trip. Please make any necessary arrangements to get back to your vehicle after the tour.
