Please see my video of Red Cone on www.youtube.com search redneckdadnco..thats me...then search red cone decent. Enjoy!!

As of July 14th.. Red Cone is officially open.

Depending on snow conditions - We will come down Webster Pass back to Hwy 285 or head up Radical Hill then come down to Montezuma to Hwy 6.

To experience white thalus rock on full moon. Wow!! We should be able to jeep at night without lights.

Meet: Safeway Gas Station. Conifer. Hwy 285. 7pm. Cb Ch 4. Walkie Talkie / 2 way radio ch 4.

See you there 7pm for 720 departure.

Would LOVE to run that trail again, but doubt I'll be up and running by then.

I'll have to keep my eye out for you though - don't think I've seen you out in Brighton yet. If I do, I'll be sure to wave.

This sounds like a blast! Just did redcone on fri. Its incredibly gorgeous. I would imagine the full moon run will be nearly cloudless. I will make an effort to go with you guys as I looooove night wheeling. And redcone at night promises incredible scenery.
How many people are you expecting?

And a heads up: this past weekend both radical hill and webster pass were under quite a bit of snow. I would estimate websters snow blockade to be about 30ft high, and I'm unsure of radical hill. I fear radical hill will have terrible washouts this year.

For the full moon run -- my intent is run Red Cone down to Montezuma -- up to Loveland Pass down to 70...

If we do this during the day as well -- we may only go to the Yellow Sign of 12,801 then reverse pre drop offs -- come back down -- not doing the three main drops to montezuma-- this way allowing plenty of time for the night run...

Was up there this week as well. Radical Hill is passable. I did it heading from Breck (North Fork) with the intention of making Webster pass. Unfortunately, that drift at the top of Webster is not going anywhere anytime soon. Heading up Radical Hill may be dicey but possible. The drift that was covering the switchbacks has melted enough. It only left one cut into the trail that is about a 2 foot climb up and down.

Hello all -- I have had many requests to lead a trip to RED CONE during the day combined with a full moon night run...August 13th is FULL MOON...So HERE IT IS....party1:

Meet Conifer Safeway Gas Station off hwy 285 10am...cb ch 4 / walkie talkie ch 4.

For the day run...we may only go to the Yellow Sign at 12,801 then reverse pre drop offs -- come back down -- not doing the three main drops to montezuma-- this way allowing plenty of time for the night run...to return to Conifer Safeway Gas Station re-fuel -- then pick up folks by 7pm for the night run up Red Cone.

For the full moon run -- my intent is run Red Cone down to Montezuma (near Keystone) -- up to Loveland Pass down to 70...

Lets Go Jeepin!!

Yes, how was it? Driving down the big hill at night should be exciting. I was up there last Saturday and sharing the trail with the guys on quads and dirt bikes seemed more dangerous than driving down the big hill. On tight areas on the trail they would come at us head on at full speed and just squeak by with out slowing down. It was worse than the Rampart area. What happened to stay/share the trail? I guess it's a dog eat dog world.
