Spectacular scenery & great singletrack make this a great short ride and part of several big rides.

Overview

Description

Park right at the start of the singletrack, or anywhere on the Shrine Pass road. A 700' climb starts things out, with a few short sections most people will have to hike.

Then cruise along a ridge and open meadows on mostly flat terrain with amazing scenery in all directions.

Turn around or continue on a big adventure to Two Elk Trail or to Vail mountain.
