Chasm Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"In Rocky Mountain National Park, Fall River Road climbs west from Endovalley to Fall River Pass before joining Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous paved roadway in the United States. At the eastern end, in a roadside chasm, Fall River pours its bounty in a dramatic chute fall of subtle resplendence at Chasm Falls.

Descend short, steep switchbacks from the road to a platform near the base of the falls. The viewing area is small, and usually quite crowded in the peak summer season when Old Fall River Road is open to the public. In the off -season, Old Fall River Road may be closed as far back as the West Alluvial Parking area, so plan on a longer hike—about 2.4 miles in each direction."
