activities in Red Cliff, Colorado

Activities for Visitors to Red Cliff

Activities for visitors are numerous in Red Cliff. Cross-country ski trails abound here. There is, for instance, the eleven mile (mostly downhill) Shine Pass for a warm-up. One can drive or mountain bike the lofty road in the summer. It offers phenomenal views of 14,005-foot, Mount of the Holy Cross. Those in search of trout fishing will find many mountain lakes nearby. Missouri Lake, the closest to Red Cliff, is a three-mile drive and a three-mile hike in, but perfect for a campout. Needless to say, Red Cliff is perfect for any outdoor lover.
