The Cache la Poudre river headwaters are in the Front Range in the northern part of Rocky Mountain National Park. The river descends eastward in the mountains through the Roosevelt National Forest. It emerges from the foothills north of the city of Fort Collins. It flows eastward across the plains and flows into the South Platte River approximately 5 miles east of Greeley. The river is a popular summer destination for fly fishing, whitewater rafting, tubing, and kayaking in the Poudre Canyon.
