Just ok, compared to the sights while hiking this was boring. Get out on the trails if you can, otherwise this is worth it.

Pack a picnic lunch, this is a fun spot to spend some time! It does get crowded however, so be prepared. A short 10 minute walk takes you to the creek area, and there are multiple places to stop, sit, and eat, as well as...More

We went exploring Alluvial Fan early in the day with a 10, 7 and 3 year old. They loved it. My littlest even said "climbing rocks makes me so happy.". This is a great little hike for young kids. Be sure to wear good shoes....More

An excellent stop for kids that love to climb rocks! The water is beautiful and cool. If you’re not into climbing, it’s just a nice place to sit by the water and watch it as it cascades over the rocks.

Fun to read the history and then the kids loved climbing on this waterfall. You can attempt to cross once you start hiking up but it may be best to cross at the bottom so you go up the east side of the Fan.

Unfortunately, we both have difficulty walking. We were able to quite easily make our way to the base of the cascades to get an idea of the falls. Parking can be difficult on a Sunday.

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
