Shrine Ridge Hike

Shrine Pass Hike

The Shrine Ridge Hike is a family and dog friendly, four mile out and back hike that is accessed at the top of Vail Pass. The best time for this hike seems to be July and August when most of the snow has melted, the trail is dry and the bugs are gone. The trail sees a lot of use, so an early start is recommeded. It's about 15 miles from Vail to the top of Vail Pass and then another 2 miles on a dirt road to the trailhead where there is parking and basic toilet facilities.
