This Is the Last Weekend of the Year to Drive Old Fall River Road
Old Fall River Road in Rocky Mountain National Park is soon closing to vehicles, the National Park Service said in a press release. On Monday, October 7, vehicles will no longer have access to Old Fall River Road.
After that, the road will be closed for bicyclists and pedestrians until Thursday, October 10, but will reopen for non-vehicle use until November 30.
Old Fall River Road was only open for a few months in 2019, with a delayed opening in July because of late-season snow. The road is narrow, winding and one-way only leading to Trail Ridge Road. Typically, it opens by the Fourth of July holiday, but this year, it opened July 12.
Trail Ridge Road opened in June, and was basically a huge wall of snow. As of now, Trail Ridge Road is still open to vehicles.
