  • With our rental car we made our way up the Old Fall River Road to the Alpine Visitor Center. !! Absolutely take the little guide with you at the beginning of the trail, there are many interesting facts in it and it leads wonderfully through the landscape!! The road is unpaved, but very passable. Since it is a one-way street you do not need to cross and can use the entire road. There are also several bays to stop-be it to get out or let subsequent vehicles pass through. Have stopped a few times and explored the surrounding area. Marmots can be seen on the street, with good eyes you can also see deer on the rocks (binoculars with you!). The weather is unpredictable, from wonderful sunshine to the snow-/hail shower, we've experienced everything on this short stretch. When we arrived at the top, we treated ourselves to a short meal at the very crowded Restaurant/Visitor Center before heading back to Bear Lake. Unfortunately, this one was already completely crowded in the morning when we arrived, and we were hoping for a better chance in the afternoon.

  • I had read reviews that the drop offs could make you feel uncomfortable of this beautiful scenic drive. But it was not dangerous, and this road was our perfect introduction to RMNP.  more »
