Old Fall River Road

Basics
Length:
10.9 miles
Difficulty:
Beginner

Description

Old Fall River Road is an easy crawl up through Rocky Mountain National Park, but the ease of the drive doesn't lessen how spectacular it is. Drive from the Estes Park entrance through thick trees and then thinned trees as you climb higher, past the timber-line. Ride along the shelf and enjoy the amazing views before the road ends in the Alpine Visitor Center parking lot at the top of Fall River Pass. If you're not in a rush, watch for turnouts near the river and for a couple of excellent hiking trails that spur off the road.

Grand Lake Grand Lake Grand Lake
Rocky Mountain National ParkAt the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake is the deepest natural lake in Colorado, dipping to 265 feet. Fed by high mountain runoff, the lake is clear and pristine. In the summer, you can rent a boat, bring your own or simply enjoy the gentle lapping of the waves from the sandy shore. Grand Lake connects with Shadow Mountain Lake via a canal, and just down the road is Lake Granby, the second largest body of water in Colorado.
