The ascent up to Red Cone from 285 was very tricky at times with a few spots of mud and big rocks but most of it is just mild rocky fun.
Red Cone itself is a beast all it's own. The views for the top are absolutely stunning. There are several good spots to stop and get out and just enjoy the views. So the off roading: the ascent is a rocky bouncy affair and the descent is like the initial drop on a rollercoaster. The perfect combination of insanely fun and terrifying! An off reading experience that everyone needs to experience.
Instead of looping back down Webster we went north to Montezuma so we could have lunch in Dillon.
Great trail.

1999 Jeep TJ 3" lift 33x12.5's 4.0L 5 Speed. Never scraped but was really happy to have the added clearance and short wheelbase.

Edit: Red Cone again this weekend, this time taking Webster Pass south back to 285 to make a loop. Descent south down from Webster is easy stuff but it is tight. A few spots had a bit of wash out and at times my driver's side tires were about a foot from the edge. Not a big deal for me but could be an issue for wider vehicles. Drive back down Webster south to 285 is beautiful.
