Red cone is definitely harder than Webster, not sure what this other guy is talking about. Red cone is fairly steep rocky and only one direction. You will need 4wd. You may not on Webster pass

Over the years I have heard so many tales about "The Feared Red Cone Pass". The views are nice and there are a few nice camping spots along the creek areas but from an Off-Road stand point this pass is a joke. The sign at the entrance reads: "Experienced off road drivers only!!" and this can be explained by the fact that Mile Hi Jeep Club maintains the trail. On a scale of 1-10 and 10 being the most difficult this trail rates as a 1 in my book. Amateur drivers with a basic stock jeep will have no problem navigating this place. Webster Pass is much harder that this trail could ever be and my 2 star rating is only because of the scenery. It is nice for the views but this is no 4x4 challenge.....
