This route is a side road of Shrine Pass Road. Initially, it travels through a very scenic, narrow canyon with barely enough room at its base for the road and Wearyman Creek. The road crosses through the shallow creek a number of times before reaching FR 708 in less than a mile. FR 708 immediately starts to climb steeply and continues through the dense forest with numerous switchbacks, where passing oncoming vehicles is possible. Special Attractions: Panoramic views of the Mount of the Holy Cross, a fourteen- thousand-foot peak. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.
