Rustic, Co. is tucked in the scenic Poudre Canyon outside Fort Collins, and is one of several tiny communities which carve out a charming existence along the state's first National Wild & Scenic River. The Cache la Poudre River (which translates to a hiding place for gunpowder in French) tumbles down from the Continental Divide in Rocky Mountain National Park along Colorado 14, now dubbed the Cache la Poudre-North Park Scenic and Historic Byway. Before it was designated a state scenic drive, however, the canyon was a major thoroughfare for Native Americans and early fur trappers.

Town Known For: Spring runoff brings kayakers to the Poudre's rapids, and summer marks the start of a concert series at the riverside Mishawaka Amphitheater (at nearby Bellevue). Other outdoor activities in the area include wildlife viewing at the Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge near North Park; fishing and water sports in the Red Feather Lakes district; and hiking, biking, and snowmobiling endless trails near the top of the canyon. Don't forget to bring the camera: Profile Rock near Rustic always makes for an interesting photograph.
