Fall River / Trail Ridge Loop

Located in Rocky Mountain National Park, this 32 mile loop climbs up Old Fall River Road (dirt), to an elevation of 11795 Feet at Fall River Pass. From there, the route rejoins Trail Ridge Road (paved) for a 20 mile descent back to your car. Scenery along the way is spectacular, with ponderosa and lodgepole forests, mountain meadows, alpine tundra and towering peaks. Wildlife viewing opportunities also exist, with elk being common in the alpine valleys below Fall River Pass.

Please note that since this ride takes place entirely within Rocky Mountain National Park, it is only legal to ride on marked roads. Old Fall River Road opens early in the summer to bicyclists, before it opens to cars - check with the Information Office for details. Entrance to the park requires a pass, daily passes may be purchased at the entrance stations, discounts are available to bicyclists, see Park Fees.
