This was a great trail for a toddler and dog. The whole family had fun and there were a few spots to stop and enjoy the Poudre.

Great local trail. The trail is mainly flat, well maintained, and heavily used. Follow the trail west to an awesome bridge, pine trees, and the cool little towns of laporte and bellview. Follow the trail east to some nice parks and huge cottonwood trees. This trail is great for walking, biking, commuting, fishing, and enjoying. Check it out in the spring during peak run off. The poudre river often overtakes the trail in some spots. It is a sigh to see. I have probably done this trail 100 times. I have never gotten sick of it, and I always find ways to appreciate its usefulness and beauty. If your in Fort Collins, this trail is a must see

Hiked the 4 mile section from Butterfly Woods to College (287) and back. A good walk, but nothing to write home about. Definitely a good candidate for a quick jog, bike ride, or short escape on a work day.

This trail is great for a relaxing hike or bike ride that can take you from Fort Collins to Greeley. It's all paved and a smooth ride on the flat plains of Colorado.
