Northern Colorado is famous for its cycling and bike culture for a good reason. We have a lot to be proud of: paved trails, open spaces, and lots of natural splendor to explore. No matter your bike or experience level, there is something in the National Heritage Area for you!

Poudre River Trail

The Poudre River Trail, existing in two parts, runs almost the full length of the National Heritage Area. Along the riverbank, this paved trail is as close to the water as you can go without getting your feet wet.

Running over 13 miles from the mouth of the Poudre Canyon through Laport and into Fort Collins this beautiful and approachable section can be done in a day and doubles as a walking path.

Just over 21 miles, the East section of the Poudre River trail will take you from River Bluffs Open Space all the way into Greeley.
