Absolutely an amazing ride. Filled with windy curves directly above the river. We saw big horn sheep and mule deer. You will also see numerous groups kayaking, rafting, and fishing. Plenty of places to pull off and get photos or just rest. An added extra is all of the places with restrooms. This is a MUST RIDE!
The Buckhorn Road section was completely re-done after flooding and the asphalt on the new section is perfect. While they did iron out some of the curves there are still some nice tight curves, stable radius. Over Rist Canyon is also nice, scenic, with a great view at the top. Favorite local ride for Fort Collins residents. Or keep going and get to the Poudre Canyon which follows the river and has many nice curves.
