Thanks to some dear friends of ours who came for a fabulous four-day expedited adventure trip, we now have an itinerary that we know works. If you love the outdoors, this is the plan for you from late May to the end of July!
Arrival: Wednesday mid-morning to noon
12 – 1 p.m. Boesen High-Level Tour – sit back and enjoy a scenic short road trip and visit Horsetooth Reservoir, a bit of Old Town and wind up at the New Belgium Brewery for lunch at the best food truck in Fort Collins, La Piadina.
2-5 p.m. -Drop your duds off, have a map orientation session and head out to the foothills on Spring Creek Trail.

1 – 6 p.m. – White water rafting on the Poudre.
8 p.m. – Walk over to the Fox and Crow for wine, beer and wonderful meat and cheese boards designed by YOU!
8 – 11 a.m. – Hike to Horsetooth Rock or the Falls – or both!
11a a.m. – 1 p.m. – Pack up snacks and a cooler and go for a pontoon boat ride on the reservoir. Pull over to a cove and take a dip in the 70-degree weather. It’s guaranteed to make you feel crispy and wonderful!
