I was starting to look into a trip up there with my brother in a few weeks here so I am kind of wondering as well. Also I have never run red cone before so any pointers?

red cone has some great obstacles, but with it also has the alternates so a stock 4x4 is fine. My buddy took his stock Bronco up it with no issues. The trail itself is one way traffic so once you commit, be aware of that. Once on top its an amazing view. we are up in the area this weekend, so if no one posts anything then i will update the post...

Folks have been over red cone and up twin cone already this season. Webster has a big snow bank at the top and a huge washout just below making it impassible.

So the trail to Webster is pretty spectacular, as mentioned before, the washout was passable, if its the one mentioned. the snowbank is however there and still very deep. As for Red Cone, the trail was a lot rougher then last time i went. I made it to the hill climb right below the pass when a storm was rolling so we turned back before the rocks got too slick. Just watch the lines so you dont hang, and have a good spotter. This is also coming from having a stock wrangler. In our group we had a modded 79 that has 31's and a 2" lift. the other driver had a 02 Ford F150 and although he had some difficulty in some of the tight turns, he made it as well.....

oh and the view...SPECTACULAR!!!
