 Note: "Old Fall River Road" is not usually open to cars until early-July; so, it has two-way bicycle traffic!  "Trail Ridge Road" is then next leg; after stopping at the Café at Trail Ridge, assuming it is 'open'.

 Alternate routes: "Trail Ridge Road" [U.S.34] is usually open by late-May; so, we may choose to ride up to the "Rock Cut" area; then, back to "Fall River Road"/ 35-miler with 4260-vertical-feet [https://ridewithgps.com/routes/21062788].

 Or, ; or, to Alpine Visitor Center / 43-miler with 5360-vertical-feet [https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27636685].
