For those interested in getting literally off-the-beaten-path, try this adventurous side trip. Near the next bend, Old Fall River Road is on your right. This 10.5 mile gravel road is the original 1921 one-way road through Rocky Mountain National Park and the first road to cross the Continental Divide. The route passes Chasm Falls, heads over Fall River Pass, and rewards with sweeping views and many chances of seeing wildlife. At the end of the road, it rejoins US-34. The road is never plowed and is only open to traffic between July and September.
