Description

Added by Lucas Bremer

Stunning 25 foot waterfall in Rocky Mountain NP.

Parking in Rocky Mountain National Park is tricky for Chasm Falls. Depending on where you are able to park, the hike will be a 0.1 mile, 2.8 mile, or 4.8 mile round-trip hike. It’s also important to know that Old Fall River Road is closed during the winter months from Nov 30th until the end of March. The parking area at the falls trail head is small and often is filled by early morning.

The hike from the pulloff along Endovalley Road is well-marked with signs. The bottom of the trail opens to a viewing platform. The falls flow generally all year, so this is a must stop along the Fall River Roan on your way up to the Alpine Visitor Center.

Reviews

Feels like walking in a line to the falls, so despite the beauty of the hike, it's not my favorite
