Hike to a hut (Vail Pass)

 

Directions to the PnR:

Ward Road
Address: 4655 Ward Rd., Wheat Ridge
Directions to the park-n-ride: From 44th Ave. & Ward Rd., continue north on Ward Rd. approximately .22 miles, left into the park-n-Ride. We will plan on leaving this park-n-ride at 8:00 am.
If you are going West on I-70 take the Ward Rd. exit and go straight through the stop light (do not turn left or right) at the bottom and into the PnR.
If you are going East in I-70 take the Ward Road exit and drive past the truck stop. Turn right onto Ward Road and go to the next stoplight where you will turn left into the PnR.

Directions to the trailhead: Drive West in I-70 to Vail Pass. Take exit 190. Turn left and cross over the highway. Turn left again and park in the lower parking lot. The bathrooms and trailhead are there.

The hike: We're going to check out the Shrine Mountain Inn. It's one of the 10th Mountain Huts. It's a five mile hike out and back. Elevation gain is around 700 ft. We aim to start the hike as close to 9:00 as we can.
