This isn't the most scenic place in Rocky Mountain National Park, but my kids loved scrambling around on the rocks and going back and forth across the river. After completing a couple of more difficult hikes, they loved having an easy destination where they could...More

I'm always looking for hikes that my 5 year old won't complain about, but the rest of us (8, 10, and myself and husband) will still enjoy. Wanted to see beautiful scenery in park too of course! This trail, which leads up to a waterfall,...More

The falls were pretty enough, moderately full, but we were unable to stop and really appreciate them because of the high volume of traffic on the road. There was no place to park or pull over.

Interesting but if you are limited on time I would suggest other hikes than this - just drive by it or check it out on one of the overlooks on Trail Ridge Road

Nice couple of safeR places for kids to dip their toes in the cool water. Interesting history in how it impacted and flooded Estes Park.

Take a few moments to visit the Alluvial Fan, it's mot the kind of thing you see very often. It's close to the road and you can spend a a few minutes there or take a longer hike if you wish.

Two major floods in the park created this giant boulder field/waterfall. Lots of people go here and play in the water but that was too cold for me! We hiked around on the boulders instead. Got some great pics! There's a nice little picnic area...More

We loved the Alluvial Fan. Lots of exploring and bouldering to be had. Great scenery and views! It's good for all ages. If you can't climb you can still view it and walk around. If you are agile you can climb up quite a ways...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

It's a short drive back to Estes Park, passing the Fall River Visitor Center on your way.
