Waterfall

Poudre Falls is a beautiful set of three cascades that flows down the Cache la Poudre River in Poudre Canyon.

To get to Poudre Falls, simply drive up Poudre Canyon on Highway 14, just north-west of Fort Collins. 

The drive all of the way up to the falls is a little bit of a jaunt and will take about an hour or so. There are plenty of cool things to see on the way, so have the camera in the passenger seat! 

As you head up the canyon you will pass the Sportsman's Lodge Cabins and Campground (on the right) from there, you will only be a few minutes away. Keep your eyes peeled for the green sign (pictured above) that says Poudre Falls.  This is where you need to pull off onto the gravel. 

As soon as you pull off the road, you will see the falls on the right side. Lock up your vehicle and follow the small trail down to the falls. 

Enjoy the falls and be safe!
