Description [Suggest Changes]

The Poudre River Trail parallels the Poudre River as it flows northeastward from Poudre Lake. This trail maintains a pretty low grade throughout making it one of the more manageable trails to run in the park.

Follow the trail downhill through the Poudre River Valley and take in the views of Specimen Mountain to the north and Trail Ridge to the south. About 5.5 miles into the trail, you'll arrive at a junction with Chapin Creek Trail - stay left to continue along the Poudre River Trail. At roughly the nine mile mark, you'll reach another junction, this time with the Mummy Pass Trail. Continue for the final stretch of the trail to its terminus at a junction with the Corral Creek Trail and the Big South Trail (both of which exit the National Park).
