Old Fall River Road Is Now Open!

Usually open from July 4 – early October, Old Fall River Road, a one-way historic dirt road built between 1913 and 1920, follows the steep slope of Mount Chapin’s south face for 9.4 miles.

 

Two years after the epic flood of September 2013 washed out the historic dirt road, Senator Cory Gardner, Congressman Jared Polis and Federal Highways Administration Division Director Ric Suarez joined park superintendent Vaughn Baker to open Old Fall River Road for the 2015 season.

 

The $4 million project was funded by The Federal Highways Administration through the Emergency Relief for Federally Owned Roads (ERFO) program.
