Plenty of stuff up Poudre Canyon

Mild to Moderate (links to Traildamage.com)
Old Flowers Road
Seven MIle Creek


Kelly Flats
is rated difficult but that is due to a specific section of the trail called the chutes( it has a bypass) "heartattack hill" is not as bad as it sounds (also has a bypass) my son has run it in his open diff 4runner

Also in the FoCo area is Moody Hill no personal experience on but if you search the forums you should find a report or two

If your up near Kelly Flats there is Red Feather also. I was up there a year ago and seen plenty of places to explore.

Kelly Flats and Old Flowers are my votes. Old Flowers is cake but nice and one way. Kelly Flats is tougher but a blast. I've always bypassed heart attack and the chutes, even without them there are a couple places you might have to take a few runs at. Old Flowers is closer if time is a big problem.

Call the forest service before going up there. I was there a week after Memorial Day and all roads were closed. Kelly Flats, Flowers, Buckhorn Road.

You will love Kelly Flats, very manageable in a stock locked 80

Made it to Kelly flats and it was closed but went a little further to pingree rd. That was ok we went and found a bunch of camping. That's good to know. I'm sure we'll get out there more... Thanks y'all.

Pingree Park is awesome!

No real "wheeling" but all the scenery you can handle...
