This area has just opened for mountain biking now that the new loop has been added. While short (plan on about an hour), it is really a fun, beautiful and technically challenging trail.
The trail runs to the east of the "Devil's Backbone" and then cuts across a wash. Here the fun begins...a 5-10 minute climb to a gorgeous view from above the Backbone, with Long's Peak in the background.
How to get there....
Drive west on US 34. When you see a large concrete water tower on your right, you are getting close. Take a right on Wild Lane and park in lot about 1/4 mile ...

Long's Peak is a famous hike in Rocky Mountain National Park in the summer....what most people don't know is that it is a great winter destination with a pair of snowshoes! Reaching timberline in just a few (uphill) miles, you are treated to beautiful views of Long's, the surrounding mountains and you can even see all the way to the Front Range! Definitely take your camera. The best part is, the way down is all downhill :-)

Leave Fort Collins on Highway 287 northbound to go to Poudre River Canyon just a couple of miles outside town. It´s a wildwater canyon where you can go rafting. Poudre River Canyon is also known as Cache la Poudre and was Colorado's first National Wild and Scenic River. It got its French name from some French trappers who discovered the canyon in the 1840s.
And nowadays where there are rapids, there are whitewater rafting trips - the river is a hot spot with both rafters and kayakers. Accessible from the canyon, the Cache la Poudre Wilderness Area ranges in altitude from 6,000' to 8,600' and its steep, rugged terrain is seldom traveled.

This photo was taken while I was driving back home to Philadelphia a mere 1800 mile drive from Fort Collins. My record time was 31hrs. Non-stop by myself.
I title this photo 'BORING'
