This was our first stop in RMNP when we arrived from airport! Good thing to do as we wanted to get acclimated to altitude before a longer hike. We climbed on all the boulders up to the area you can swim if you are brave...More

We wanted to get a closer look at this Fan but the road was closed. You will have to vie wthe Alluvial Fan from the Beaver Ponds lookout or the Rainbow Curve.

I'll leave it to the other reviewers to describe how the fan came to be. The best aspect of the fan for families with young kids is that the hike to the fan is short and over a good trail and that the boulders are...More

We accidentally ended up here because the ranger-led hike we planned to do got cancelled. It was wonderful! Our kids, age 5 & 8, were thrilled to hike up the sandy slope and then we climbed all the way to the top of a rock...More

If you enter the Fall River Entrance to RMNP, the Alluvial Fan is about 3 miles from this entrance. You will see the right hand turn off highway 34 onto Endovalley Road. There is a sign. You can download the official RMNP... More
