Description

This is a one-way road, ascending only. You must continue all the way to Trail Ridge Rd. and the Alpine Visitor Center once you start.

The road travels up the Fall River Drainage and features many overlooks at notable locales. Possibly the most prominent is Chasm Falls, where the Fall River plummets over a ledge in the drainage.

On the Road: A beautiful drive on Old Fall River Road.
