If you're renting an RZR Side-by-Side, Snowmobile or Timbersled from us, the first place we will recommend you visit is Vail Pass. The Vail Pass Recreation Area located in the Central Rocky Mountains is a 65,000+ acre playground for back country enthusiasts. For Colorado Adventure seekers, Lime Creek Road is one the main connecting routes between the Vail Pass Recreation Area and Red Cliff, Colorado and has some of the more difficult terrain to cover on the pass. At the base of the road in Red Cliff sits the very popular Mango's Restaurant; known for its fish taco's and great beer selection. During the summer, parking is free to the public but due to high traffic in the winter, there is now a $10 per day parking fee which can be paid at the service booth.
Lime Creek Road is often times filled with snowmobile's and back country skiers who are hitching rides. The road is an intermediate trail and offers just over 15 miles of packed track. Lime Creek will eventually connect with Shrine Pass Road and you even pass the Shrine Pass Cabins and if you're up for a short hike, you can head out to the Mt. Holy Cross look out point - it offers a great deck for lunch picnics.
There are a variety of connecting trail routes that you can access via Lime Creek Road but be aware that not all trails are meant for winter travel. The U.S. Forest Service does not allow snowmobile and timbersled access to all routes. View our Colorado Map or grab a copy of the U.S. Forest Service map to learn more.
