Description

Caples Crest Road begins at the bottom of its namesake lift near the picnic tables and heads north before looping back to the top of Caples Crest Lift. The grade is quite flat at first and then climbs steadily to the half-way point. Here the grade briefly levels before completing the final climb to the top.

The roads starts off of the Snowkirk Road and intersects with the following on its way to the top: Lower Corral, Red Cliffs, Whiskey, Whiskey Shots, Iron Horse Road, and Vista.
