Great trail and there are two tough switchbacks right now before you get to the top. Dug our about 3feet in areas so you need a lift and good tires. The switchbacks are very tight so good to have a spotter. I’ve read the two switchbacks can be easy at times but not right now.

This was a fun trail for sure. Once you are on the trail, the first few miles are pretty rocky. A few spots you need to make sure you have a good line, but otherwise it can be done. I’d recommend good tires, a lift and a functional T-case at a minimum. There were a few strangers that went up, but turned around while we were up there. The top of Red Cone is amazing. The trial going down is steep, but nothing too bad. We will go again soon.

Amazing, but don't go if you are afraid of heights

Great trail with great views. The trail up is very rocky and was more difficult then expected. The views on top are amazing.

As far as scenery goes, the top of Red Cone is a sight to behold! Trail is not extremely difficult but loose rock can cause some slippage. A couple of tight spots with longer wheel base vehicles but nothing too tight you can get through. Descent off of the top of Red Cone is steep but really not that bad. Went early enough in the day that the traffic was not heavy at all. Overall a great trail with plenty to see.

This was another good trip, the views are non stop and it's worth the trip. Traffic is really high however and so you can tell that the trail is not that difficult. It's a good one to bring a few friends looking to try out the 4x4 button on their vehicles and maybe the views will get them hooked. I would to it again but maybe next time have more time to accommodate the off-road traffic.
