Shrine Pass Road TH #709
This dirt road starts at Vail Pass and ends at the town of Redcliff. It can be traveled in either direction, but for biking it is much easier starting at Vail Pass. This dirt road is passable by all but the lowest passenger cars and is relatively easy for mountain bikers. It offers views of Mount of the Holy Cross in the Sawatch Range, access to the Shrine Mountain Trail, and access to the short, accessible trail to "Julia's Deck."
