In 2014, the Grand County Tourism Board, Visit Fort Collins, The Cache La Poudre River National Heritage Area and Visit Estes Park collaborated to create a map, brochure and webpage encouraging visitors to explore this unique part of north central Colorado. The Loop includes the Colorado River Headwaters Scenic and Historic Byway, the Cache La Poudre/North Park Scenic & Historic Byway, the Cache La Poudre River National Heritage Area and the Trail Ridge Road Scenic Byway.
The loop tour encompasses 360 miles and passes through plains, foothills, mountain passes, mountain parks, river corridors and diverse communities such as Grand Lake, Granby, Hot Sulphur Springs, Kremmling, Estes Park, Fort Collins and Walden. This often-overlooked region offers unique stories from the past, present and future.
