Overview

Incredibly steep descent from summit.

The thing you’ll remember most about this trail is the extremely steep descent at the end. Although scenery is breathtaking at the top, you may be a bit preoccupied to enjoy it. Use your lowest gear and brake as little as possible. Do not lock up your brakes. If you feel your back end sliding sideways, you may have to apply a little gas to straighten yourself out.

South end of trail winds steeply uphill through the forest with intermittent rocky and muddy sections. The climb continues above timberline to the very top of Red Cone. At that point, if you don’t like what you see, you can turn around. Don’t descend if BOTH sides of Webster Pass are blocked by snow. You’ll be boxed in with no place to go. Aggressive stock SUVs only and experienced drivers.

We rode this trail in a UTV in the summer of 2018. Generally, Red Cone is a bit more difficult, however, we found coming down Handcart Gulch was a little easier. There wasn’t much snow at Webster Pass, but of course, this area is commonly blocked by snow in early summer.
