Poudre River Trail-athlon Adventure Begins June 1

Poudre Trail logo

This year, ‘find yourself in nature’ by taking part in Poudre River Trail-athlon adventures all summer long. Register for the Trail-athlon as an individual, couple, group, or family. Thanks to our generous community sponsors, the event is free. 

To get started, pick up a Trail-athlon adventure kit any time after June 1. The kits are available at the Lincoln Park Library (1012 11th St.), Centennial Park Library (2227 23rd Ave.), or Farr Regional Library (1939 61st Ave.) in Greeley. In Windsor, visit the Windsor Severance Library (720 3rd St.).  

Activities include bike and hike discovery challenges, mapping, creativity exercises, learning about rail and trail safety, wildlife observation, and a scavenger hunt. The kit provides instructions, materials, and worksheets to encourage participation and document each activity.

Participants must return their packets to a participating library by Aug. 15. Trail explorers who complete more than two activities may be eligible for trail prizes—while supplies last. All participants that turn in their completed activity kit and register will be entered into a random drawing for a chance to win a new bike.

“This free program is a great way for the community to discover the Poudre River Greenway and connect to nature,” said Poudre River Trail Manager Bob Hinderaker. “We hope everyone will explore a whole new world along the Poudre River Corridor.”

The Weld Trust and Kaiser Permanente are the 2022 event sponsors for the Poudre River Trail-athlon Adventure. Community organizations and businesses sponsored each of the ten individual activities.

Extending 21-miles, the Poudre River Trail runs east to west along the Cache la Poudre River from the west side of Windsor to the east side of Greeley. Nine trailheads offer safe access to the trail and dedicated parking areas. Visit www.poudretrail.org for more.

The Poudre River Trail Corridor, Inc. is a local non-profit organization managed by a local board comprised of Greeley, Windsor, and Weld County representatives. The board operates under the direction of those community representatives and an intergovernmental agreement allowing the support of staff from the City of Greeley, Weld County, and the Town of Windsor. Together they form a community partnership that maintains and improves the Poudre River Trail.
