Fall River Trail Extension
Update Mar. 06, 2018
The Town of Estes Park was awarded a grant from the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) in the amount of $400,000 last month for the 2019 construction of the Fall River Trail Extension - Phase 3. The grant funding will be used for the portion of Fall River Trail that will begin at the David Drive/Fish Hatchery Road intersection and will end at the Rocky Mountain National Park Fall River Entrance boundary.
Trail alignments and design for the Fall River Trail have been completed with funds awarded through the Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in Parks Program of the U.S. Department of Transportation.
When construction funding is secured, the Town of Estes Park proposes to construct a ten-foot wide, approximately 2.5-mile concrete extension of the Fall River multi-use trail that will connect the existing trail, near Castle Mountain Lodge, to Rocky Mountain National Park. East of Fish Hatchery Road, the new trail would likely be located along the south side of Fall River Road. West of Fish Hatchery Road, trail locations will be along Fish Hatchery Road.
