Old Fall River Road in Rocky Mountain National Park is expected to open this Wednesday, June 29, for the season. Old Fall River Road normally opens by the Fourth of July holiday weekend. This summer, during periods of high vehicle congestion, park staff may restrict vehicle access when needed on Old Fall River Road. The road will close for the season to vehicles on Monday, October 3, for annual maintenance, and reopen to bicycles and pedestrians from October 7 through November 30. On December 1, the road will revert to trail status.
From Chapin Pass hikers will have access to the outstanding Chapin/Chiquita/Ypsilon hike which takes hikers near the very top of the Mummy Range.
