I'd say about 2 1/2 hours. I'm assuming they started from Camp Hale, which is between Leadville and Vail. To see Shrine Pass (basically a dirt road) you can go up I-70 to Vail Pass and get off for the rest area. After you cross the bridge and descend to the rest area there will be a right hand turn onto a dirt road. That takes you to Shrine Pass, McCallister Gulch is on the back (west) side.

From Denver, yes about 2.5 hours. For me, about 20 minutes from work We started from Camp Hale and dumped out on Shrine Pass Road. I then drove Shrine home. Farnham and Fritz live in the Vail Valley so they jumped on the highway.

A few more pics.

few more pics others are in 4wheel staging. It's a nice area to Wheel and camp. Dispersed camping is permitted through out Camp Hale. Trails are moderate. McAllisters, Ptarmigan, Lime creek, Shrine pass is a HWY. Yoder Gulch is across the street. Holly Cross City, 10 min down the road. I'm always willling to give some you city folks a tour.

Nice. I'll have to get up there and check it out some time. What altitude is the trail?
