Mountain Biking Shrine Pass

****   Add a review
#618 of 1,353 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#6,380 in the world

Start at the top of Vail Pass and head up the dirt road of Shrine Pass. You will climb to the topof
Shrine Pass in 2.5 miles. As you descend there will be a trailhead on the left side of the road.
This is a half mile trail to a veiwpoint of Mount of the Holy Cross. Once you are done enjoying
the veiw turn around and continue down the road. Ignore all spurs and you will eventually find
yourself in the small town of Redcliff. I hope you have a car parked there or else it will be a long
ride to Vail Pass either through Vail or returning on Shrine Pass.

    Views from the top are worth it! But if you don't mind climbing, it's not so bad to start in Redcliff and ride up and back! It was fun

    This is a great trail for beginers or with your family. The veiws are nice and it is not that bad of a climb to the top of the pass. THe only problem is that the road is pretty washboardy.
