All reviews lawn lake on the rocks parking lot debris field tree trunks interesting history million gallons of water interesting place huge boulders water flowing picnic area mother nature rock climbing old fall river road great for kids short hike west side
When we first arrived here, it looked like they tore the waterfall and stream all out because of the floods. We couldn't see the waterfall, the bridge was gone and there was just a small stream among large boulders and a rocky parking lot. Nothing...More
We had no idea what an alluvial fan was until we saw it. Very interesting and well worth the hike. We liked it so much we actually hiked from both parking lots and did a great rock scramble to get closer to the top. I...More
All it is is a load of boulders washed down the river in a flood some years ago which are all scattered on the river banks. Unless you are passing on the 34 /36 circular road trip I would not bother to go especially otherwise.
If you are interested in a short walk to an interesting view of historical mountain flood plain this is great. In 1982 an earthen dam broke holding an alpine lake, flooding the area and killing a couple of campers down stream and into Estes Park....More
Alluvial Fan is the product of a flood in 1982 which resulted when an earthen dam built in the 30's failed. The gorge and waterfall attest to the incredible power of water. That flood even changed the course of Roaring Creek. Then in 2013, a...More
Hiking next to flowing water on the rocks is the best! Granted this isn't one of your more difficult hikes that take you to lakes, but this was a good, short morning excursion for us instead of going to an overcrowded Bear Lake/Emerald Lake trail...More

Found out about this just from talking to someone at bear lake. We got there in the morning, and had the place to ourselves. Was getting crowded, and when we were leaving there were a couple tour jeeps there. It was just a short little...More

Endovalley Road to the Alluvial Fan from highway 34 is a two way road and you can backtrack to highway 34 after visiting the Alluvial Fan. It is a google maps error that indicates you must travel Old Fall River Road to get back to highway 34. We actually discussed this on the TA Rocky Mountain National Park travel forum back in early November when you were planning this trip. If you want to look back, click on your screen name and all your posts on TA will come up.
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
