Red Cone is a scary trail but a great one for stock vehicles and those just starting out on moderate to difficult trails. We had everything from Jane's stock TJ to Perry's beefy Ford Explorer so we had a little of everything. No one got into any trouble and everyone had a good time (even Jenn on her crutches as a passenger)!
We started out on time and Bob actually saw our group on Highway 285 and managed to catch up with us (he'd gone past Conifer and was waiting in Bailey). We started the trail and Jane's stock TJ did really well on all of the rocky obstacles. Nice driving! The weather was decent (a little cloudy) and no one had even a tiny bit of vehicle issues.
The first hill had a lot of Whoopdeedoos in it this year, where the dirt is really red. The second hill was also pretty wavy. The third hill was steep but pretty mellow. We all came down smiling.
Radical Hill was still closed due to snow so we went out using the north end of Webster Pass. We had lunch in that gorgeous meadow where Radical Hill and Webster Pass meet -- Perry and his group brought an impressive picnic of food and patio furniture. The run was fun as it always is. Red Cone is a really fun trail!
