It’s a bumpy ride to Fall River Reservoir but worth every jolt. Hike around the calm, cool waters of the reservoir, and then follow a cascade of wildflower-festooned waterfalls to one of the best-kept alpine secrets in the Front Range: the Fall River Basin. This wide-open alpine meadow is pure Colorado beauty. Several excellent summits await, with potential loops north or south. Don’t miss the ruins of an old communication tower near the summit of Mount Eva.
