Animal Welfare League of Alexandria
The county and the Colorado State Forest is home to 600 moose, with about a third of those located near the Moose Visitor Center near Gould. The animals' chocolate brown coloring makes them easy to spot against the snowy
landscape. Moose have no problem with deep snow, thanks to their long
legs. Photographers, however, will need snowshoes to get out into the state forest and see these critters. The state forest offers camping cabins, which can be reserved at the visitors center. Bring everything you'd need to camp outdoors in order to use these cabins. Motels can be found about 20 miles away in the town of Walden. To get to the Moose Visitor Center, take Colorado 14 west from Fort Collins and through scenic Poudre Canyon. Go 75 miles to the visitor center. Once you reach Cameron Pass, you're officially in the state forest and about 8 miles from the visitor center, accessible off County Road 4. Alternatively, you can reach the Walden area via I-70 to Granby and north on State Highway 125.
