The trip up is challenging and fun. You reach an elevation of over 12,800 feet with a spectacular 360-degree view. A real adventure with high views of a stunningly beautiful area. Return via Handcart Gulch, to complete a great loop route. Very popular area to explore on ATVs and dirt bikes. To drive this trail, you must have supreme confidence in your vehicle and your driving skills. This trail’s notoriety is based on an extremely steep 3/4-mile long, one-way descent from the top of Red Cone down to Webster Pass. This stretch is so steep it is difficult to walk down in places. It is extremely dangerous because your vehicle will likely roll if it gets sideways on the hill. Before descending, make sure there is no snow blocking your continued descent from Webster Pass, because you cannot turn around and drive back up Red Cone. This section is one way downhill only. Those who attempt to drive up this section will damage trail and risk getting the trail closed. Do not descend this section if Webster Pass is snow covered or you will get boxed in with no place to go. Only the most aggressive stock SUVs with experienced drivers should attempt this trail. Your best chance of a snow-free trip is in late August or early September.
