This trail is within the Comanche Peak Wilderness. The trail follows the Poudre River, and after seven miles intersects the river. There is no bridge over the river and fording river is not always possible, particulary during spring runoff. Camping along this trail is limited to designated sites, no campfires are allowed.
Drive approximately 49 miles west of Fort Collins on Highway 14 (Poudre Canyon Highway).
The trailhead is on the south side of the highway, just before the Big South Campground.
