Thirty years ago I was told about a trail along the Poudre River which would someday go all the way to Fort Collins from Greeley. I thought that was a nice goal but would it happen.
Now in 2011 we have a trail that stretches from Greeley and beyond reaching out to Fort Collins just outside of Windsor. I am very impressed at the hard work from the board, volunteers, donors, land owners, city of Greeley, Windsor, Fort Collins and the state of Colorado for working as a community to create this dream into reality.
I use the trail for transportation, exercise, teaching classes, photographic experiences and general meditation.
The community(s) have benefited so much from the Poudre Trail that can be measured in a term of "Quality of Life".
