The trailhead is on private property and completely blocked off. The road up is an easy off-road trail. That’s what we recorded. Super bummed.

Awesome views!

Trail was in great shape. Parts of the trail were technical and def need a well equipped vehicle to make the boulder field and few other rock sections. First time on the trail and will make sure I hit it again the next time I’m in Denver! Drove a 2014 JKU with 3in rock krawler lift and 35’s.

Starts out as nice easy ride, but does get very difficult with large boulders and narrow rocky climbs!

Not for the faint of heart, or stock of vehicle. Very rutted and lots of loose rocks, but a good line, good spotter and the right tunes get you all over this mountain with a smile on your face. Lift and locker advised.

Great ride most the way. Some points narrow to just a little more than a 4-wheeler. Need good clearance and good tires too. Stopping places to eat a packed meal are many, and beautiful. Summit is beautiful.
We also went on up from the GP summit to another trail which was good but a narrow road with a lot of steep drop offs for a good ways. Summit view there was wonderful too.

Excellent trail. A little scary going down the back of Webster pass (on your way to the start of Red Cone) as if gets a little narrow in one specific spot but other then that it was an excellent trail with some great fall colors!
We did air down which made the ride a lot smoother and a little easier in the narrower spots. Also, the water in the river was low at the beginning of the trail.
Wasn’t too crowed when we went on Saturday . I love this trail!

Been doing this trail for years. Rough and smooth riding at times. Continued to the Rockhouse via different trail. Take map, numerous trails intersect.

Great trail for the views, and the off road challenges. In my side by side the Webster pass road was a lot of fun. Radical hill and Red Cone , not for the faint of heart or un skilled drivers. Had fantastic day and only had time for half the trails in the area will definitely return again and again.

I made it about halfway up from the North side, coming from Breckenridge, before I had to turn around. I drove through two water crossings before hitting a steep section with loose rock and slid about 20-30 feet downhill, backwards, into the water! Had good tires, but that doesn't mean anything when you are on loose rocks. It was pretty nerve racking but everything turned out okay and next time I may try it from Jefferson to Breckenridge - sounds a lot easier coming that way. The top of the pass is deeply rutted and a bone shaker - so I hear. I would suggest a good 4 wheel with adequate clearance. Make sure you wheel with a buddy in case something happens. Lots of great campsites!

went down in 2007 4runner 3inch lift and 33s. Landed on my exhuast on one part. Was alone so had to get off multiple time to make sure I didnt hit any of the fallen boulders in the middle of the road. 4runner didnt struggle just a lot of tight spots going over fallen debri.

Great little trail, one of my favorites so far. I have a 2016 JK Rubicon with 3.5" lift and 35's. Quite an easy one with a couple fun challenges. I only saw a couple people on the trail all day. Leaves are changing and it was just a beautiful ride. Not very rocky at all. Didn't even air down.

There's little on Crystal Peak - that's what I'll concentrate on.

As you are hiking toward Upper Crystal Lake on the single-track trail, you'll see a cairn on the right and a dirt trail. At this point, you're about 0.5 miles from the upper lake. The AllTrails recording reflects the trail with the dashed line.

There is a trail part way to Crystal Peak - to the saddle. You can also see it on google maps satellite.

Turn right, briefly hike up, you'll see one or two more cairns. The trail temporarily disappears as you head left and cross a few rocks - maybe 10 - 15 yards - and you'll pick up the trail again. Trail takes you to the saddle - left is Crystal Peak, right Peak Ten.

As you head to Crystal Peak, there is a semblance of a trail in the beginning. Eventually, it's all rocks - class 2 scramble/limited exposure. Your choice - stick with poles or put them in the backpack and put on your gloves as you climb to the peak.

Gloves came in handy for the rock scramble. Beautiful views!

4 runner TRD off road stock. 1.6 miles in from the start of the trail head is a very narrow section where a boulder had fallen. Some rocks are stacked up to go over it. If i had sliders and a co pilot that was more willing to stack rocks and guide me over it I would of gone all the way. Instead backed down and turned around. I'll be back once i get a lift and some other upgrades. Stock vehicles with high clearance I believe could make this just would take a lot guiding and maybe a few scratches or dings, not willing to take the risk in a new ride. Regardless the first 2 miles are a gorgeous view and was awesome getting out.

Drove this trail in a stock tired old GMC Jimmy and kinda got hooked on off-roading. This trail is easy and has a few great views. About a week after this trip I did a full suspension rebuild for my Jimmy and lifted it 2.5 inches. Super excited to hit more trails.

Went Aug. 11 from the Jefferson side. Regular dirt road 'til the top of the pass. pretty rocky the first mile and a half or so. A stock 4 x 4 can make. Just make good decisions over rocks. Good family trail. A couple geocache's to find. pond. lots flowers. drinks at marina. good times.

Sep 4, 2018 rode a stock Honda CRF 250L to within 1/4 mile of the upper lake and stopped. Great ride overall. Saw a sheep near the end and stopped to let him graze right to me. Fun! After that I turned around. The upper lake section of trail becomes increasingly difficult for a so-so offroad bike. I was glad to turn around and in fact had some difficulty doing even that since the trail was traversing a steep rocky slope and offered no wider spot to use. Fine FINE ride though to high alpine area. Getting to the lower lake was a piece of cake (and I saw a decent mule deer buck on the way there). I went early on a week day and there was no one else there.

Super fun trail with some good obstacles but nothing crazy. Its a little tougher to run it the way it says here, but if you’re confident in your driving most stock vehicles with 4x4 and good clearance shouldn’t have any trouble. Otherwise just run it taking a right at the first fork. Most of the camping is on that side of the loop as well.

Have done Webster Pass the last two years. Numerous times. Always a good trail. Nothing too technical until you start climbing the pass. Because it is so narrow and right on the cliff side. But this pass stays open all summer and fall and part of spring. Would not recommend Red Cone unless you are hardcore and have some really good brakes. Good views and moderate wheeling.

Great trail to start on and practice. This is the first trail I went on off-roading and have been back a number of times since.

From what I can see however, this map only shows about half of the trail.

I'd break it down into 3 sections:

1) The start the Peak To Peak highway to the old station clearing at the Sugarloaf Mountain side.

2) Station to Fourmile Canyon Drive (shown as the end on this map).

3) The trail continues on the other side of the road (marked by a blue sign saying alternative evacuation route) and up to gold hill road.
This section includes the Mount Alto picnic area.

As noted in other reviews there are a couple of other trails off here (Pennsylvania Gulch stands out as being the toughest of the bunch, it's very rocky in places and needs high clearance, 4 low to get through without issue, not really a trail for beginners. The others off of here are on par with the rest of this trail though)

They are very similar in difficulty, there's no big rocks and only a few narrow stretches.
You can generally find a place to pass really close, should you meet somebody coming the other way on one of these narrow places.
Most of it is wide enough for 2 to pass.

For me, not keen on heights at all, there are some places with quite the drop off the side of the trail.
The one springs to mind, is close to the Mount Alto Picnic area, where there is a large stone on the driver side of the trail that looks a little bit like a tree stump, though it's actually fairly wide.
Still it is not that scary, even for me, who has an issue with heights.

My fear of heights is something that off-roading in Colorado is helping me come to terms with! LOL :-)

I have seen 2wd cars on this trail, so it's a really good place to get used to your 4wd vehicle and off-roading in general.
This trail has been recommended as a starting trail by a number of different people and is very popular.

Airing down helps make the trail smoother, though I've done it without airing down (because I am a newbie!).
If you don't have a decent air compressor, there are 2 places in Nederland nearby you can air up at. The Gas station on the roundabout and the Kwik Mart across from it.


Note for the complete new starter to 4x4 offroading:

If you're still not sure you want to start with this one, do the Old Fall river road in Rocky Mountains National park about an hour north of this.
That's an unpaved road and really only needs 2wd, has some awesome views up in the Alpine Biome and it is a one way only road, so no need to worry about passing.
It's not listed on this site for some reason though.

Did this with Atvs. Parked at the parking lot before you reach the trailhead. Busy on weekends but worth the trip!

Excellent technical off roading. It's not crazy hard but at times you will absolutely need 4wd low, a short wheelbase and extra clearance and a narrow vehicle. I suspect full size trucks would have some real problems at times.
Started from the west side from Moon Gulch and headed east. First half is fairly easy and fun and then it suddenly gets some real attitude.
Some really fun rock crawling and a few places that either require a spotter or getting out and walking the trail to get a path. Lots of 4wd low and 1st going down rocky slopes.
Only reason I rate this a 4 is because there isn't a huge variety of scenery. It's pretty but it's all the same kind of pretty from beginning to end. For just technical off roading fun this trail is a hoot! Hard enough to make you feel like a hero, but not so hard that I ever worried about my Jeep.

Amazing drive. Can be packed on weekends depending on the time. Great views and scenery throughout the whole drive.

Came here with my partner and dog. we are 20 somethings that live at 5000+ ft altitude and are not in fantastic shape. This was very challenging for me. More so the length than the hike itself. The view by the sign in the valley was more stunning than the top view. we came here labor day weekend and got stuck in all the Estes traffic but only saw about 6 people on the trail.

Pretty fun trail! Decided to take the truck up for her maiden off road trip, and she did great. The trail itself is more advanced than I had anticipated. I've been up the Mount Antero trail many times in other trucks, rated as "Moderate" like this one. This trail is far more advanced than the Antero trail. Scraped the skid plates and running boards a couple of times on this one. Awesome trail with amazing views though! Going again tomorrow with the family!

Great hike overall! But do not go on the part of the trail marked 247D. This part of the trail is completely overgrown and very hard to find a path past all the fallen trees and tall grass. Everything else was a great challenge with a few beautiful vantage points (although not at the highest point in elevation, as you’d expect).

Fun trail with some challenging obstacles. We had light rain at the first big obstacle, so winching was necessary for both of us. The Rock Garden was aptly named, and was a lot of fun to go through. The added bonus of the Aspens starting to change colors made it a great day. Bring your lockers and some ground clearance for this one.

Fun Drive, some tricky parts, aspens everywhere, beautiful views!

Great day trip. North side is rough but the south side is not much more than a gravel road Trail markings on the north are good. Coming at it from the south is harder to find the road.
