Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area

Flowing through the picturesque town of Fort Collins, Colorado the Cache la Poudre River is located at the northern part of Rocky Mountain National Park. The name of the river, which mean “Hide the Powder” in French comes from an incident in the 1820s when French trappers were caught in a snowstorm and forced to bury part of their gunpowder along the banks of river. The river is a popular summer destination for whitewater rafting, tubing and kayaking and for its trout fishing.
