A wide variety of twisting roads perfect for ATVs. Most routes are between 9,000 and 11,000 feet; however, a few places, like Resolution Mountain, approach 12,000 ft. Distant views of Mt. Holy Cross and great seasonal wildflowers. A popular hiking and horseback riding area. Please stop and shut off your engine around horses. The combined distance of the two adjoining loops is 42 miles. Take your time and enjoy a full day of riding. Take a second day and ride in reverse direction for a completely different experience. Climb steeply through dense forest to Resolution Mountain, then descend back down to multiple crossings of Wearyman Creek. Climb steep, rocky Lime Creek Road and return via easy but beautiful Shrine Pass Road. Finish with final climb up Wearyman Creek to Ptarmigan Pass and return via easy Resolution Road. Other nearby route: Red & White Mountain, Trail #17, is located north of I-70 at Vail.

Excellent trail... moderate difficulty with a Rzr. Saw a ton of Jeeps. Very good payoff above the tree line.
