Looking for whitewater rafting in the northern part of Colorado? The Cache la Poudre River (hint: Poudre rhymes with scooter) offers unspoiled wilderness and exciting whitewater. The Lower Poudre is a great summer adventure for families staying in northern Colorado. Quick-moving Class II-III rapids Pinball and Roller Coaster provide a thrill for children and adults. It’s the perfect trip for first time rafters looking to get their feet wet, but even experienced paddlers will appreciate this unique and beautiful river. As you splash through this pristine stretch of Roosevelt National Forest, keep an eye out for abundant wildlife, including deer, bighorn sheep, and various species of birds.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Convenient to Boulder, Fort Collins, and Estes Park
  • Wild and Scenic – the only river with this designation in Colorado
  • Exciting Class II-III rapids are still appropriate for kids
  • Great family option
