Description

This hike is located up Poudre Canyon not too far from Chambers Lake. The trail begins near Highway 14 and follows the Poudre River upstream south to Peterson Lake. We won’t go that far but will go about 3.5 miles before turning back. This trail varies with flat strolls at river level, climbs above the gorge formed by the river and crosses rock traverses over talus areas. What stands out is the sight and sound of the river rushing over rocky cascades. The area is noted for wildflowers and forest scenery. There will be visible impact from the Cameron Peak Fire and we will see the process of regeneration. The hike is rated A with about 1100’ elevation gain and RT of 7 miles. Cost to passengers is $9 payable to the driver. Max of 8 hikers due to limited parking. Fully vaccinated hikers please. Contact Tom Bruch, tombruch1964@gmail.com
