From Estes Park take Fall River Road into Rocky Mountain National Park. Go 2 miles past the Fall River Road entrance to the park and turn right onto Old Fall River Road. This is a one way dirt road, passable by any car. Take this road for an additional 7.8 miles to the Chapin Pass Trailhead. This is where your hike begins.

Nice hike, there are two ways to go up the high hike across mount chapin, or valley hike up. We took the high way up and the valley hike down, no marked signs just follow the path. It was very windy and cold but was worth it, beautiful.

Great easy hike with amazing views

I also would not agree with "easy" but the views are spectacular! The beginning and end are pretty rough but the majority of the trail is not too bad, if you have gotten used to the altitude. Start early and continue on to Ypsilon.

I would not agree with the description of "easy" but it certainly is beautiful! It has a 2400 ft elevation gain, lots of boulder hopping, and following cairns to find the trail. There is a register on top - proof you tackled this 13er. The views are gorgeous but watch out for quick moving afternoon storms .
