We liked climbing to the top of the waterfall and climbing on the boulders. It's strange to think that the rocks were dropped there by a dam breach. Fun place to go.

I've seen the fan from the Trail Ridge Road and am glad that we finally got down to see it. The road goes right over it, so there's really no hike necessary to experience it. It's hard to believe that all the rocks were put...More

This is an easy short hike but there are lots of rocks and uneven surfaces. Great for kids. Doable with knee replacement and arthritis if you pay attention.

On your trip to Rocky Mountain National Park make sure to stop at Alluvial Fan for an easy hike to a gorgeous waterfall! You can see the whole valley and mountain ranges from this spot as well. Great photo ops everywhere!

There are two separate parking areas and approaches to this lovely and interesting location. Either one will provide access. Both have toilet facilities. The trail to the falls is not difficult but; it is uneven and requires stepping over rocks and boulders. This is a...More

A dam broke in 1982 and flooded the area. Huge boulders in great numbers came tumbling down the mountainside. There are parking lots on both sides of what is now a waterfall. Picnic area on far side. Short trails either way over the rocks and...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
