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.

Red Cone was extremely beautiful and fun to decent from the top. But it was extremely rocky getting to the top that I wouldn’t do it again. Not that dangerous just extremely rocky.

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.
Awesome Trail. Not for the faint of heart. Best View in CO. Be Ready. :)
Red cone and Radical hill are the best in the area. Easy to connect them both. A great longer day...See More
Travelled Red Cone on 8-17-2022 on an ATV. First third of the trail was slow and very rocky. A 90...See More
