About Green Bridge Inn
Come and spend your summer vacation in the Rockies! There are plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy here in Red Cliff. Stay at Green Bridge Inn and enjoy any of the following activities in Red Cliff or the surrounding area.
Surrounded by mountain lakes, Red Cliff is ideal for trout fishing. Only 3 miles away, Missouri Lake provides exciting fishing for any fly-fishing enthusiast. If river fishing is what you want, the Eagle River will never disappoint.
Other popular activities around Red Cliff include mountain biking, hiking, climbing, and off-roading in the White River National Forrest and the wildlife around here is incredible. You can also enjoy kayaking or whitewater rafting on Eagle River, and even golfing (check out Vail Golf Club).
Red Cliff is so close to Vail you can almost hear the skiers shooting down the fresh-powdered slopes. Unlike Vail, there is one thing Red Cliff is missing though: crowds. Tucked away in a canyon near Vail, you can enjoy the remarkable skiing but feel set apart from the huge swarms of skiers. If that's not enough, Beaver Creek Ski Area is only 25 minutes away.
One thing in over-abundance around Red Cliff is cross-country ski, snowmobile, and bike/drive trails - they are everywhere. The 11-mile, mostly downhill Shrine Pass is considered a favorite for all adventure enthusiasts.
Red Cliff Activities
Set among the red quartzite cliffs along Highway 24, tucked back among the aspen and pine trees is a small, historic town booming with the everyday Colorado mountain appeal. Founded in 1879, this old mining town has kept its quirky and quaint feel while continuing to offer access to world-class sceneries and outdoor activities. Visitors pile in from around the world during all seasons as Red Cliff is a great place for kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, skiing, biking, sightseeing and much more.
Shrine Pass: Located right off the main street of Red Cliff is the entrance to one of Colorado’s most picturesque and easily accessible wilderness roads. Whether your adventuring by foot, car or four wheeler, dirt bike or mountain bike, this Pass is accessible year-round. Load up at Green Bridge Provisions with sack lunches and beverages and head up the Pass for a day of great outdoor activities. And don’t think the fun stops when the snow falls! Shrine Pass is a top-rated getaway for snowmobilers, snowshoers, and backcountry skiers alike. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can even ski from the back of Vail’s Blue Sky Basin right to your door at Green Bridge Inn.
Camp Hale: Explore the area of an old U.S. Army training facility first built in 1942 to train the 10th Mountain Division in winter and mountain warfare for combat during World War II. From Red Cliff, hike, off-road, or snowmobile up old train tracks to the Camp’s original location. The Camp can also be reached quickly by driving 7 miles South from Red Cliff on Highway 24.
Homestake Reservoir: Ten miles South of Red Cliff on Highway 24 is Homestake Reservoir, a beautifully hidden lake that offers amazing views of the Holy Cross Wilderness area. This area offers amazing hiking, trout fishing, off-roading and more.
Cemetery Loop: Pack up a lunch, grab your camelback, and take a walk along Cemetery Loop. The loop starts right up the hill from Red Cliff and takes you through the historic Red Cliff Cemetery, where early pioneers are buried, and past multiple boulders perfect for rock climbing and bouldering. The trail ends at Highway 24, which you will cross to descend down the Southern entrance to Red Cliff. Follow the road down along the river, which will soon turn under the Green Bridge, and take you right back into Red Cliff. The loop is easily accessible and open all year round.
