Red Cone & Radical Hill

Red Cone is one of the most scenic runs in Colorado. It's also the only trail (that I'm aware of) that is one-way, by law, once you start down the west face. It's about 25 degrees nose-down. It's made of loose shale and it's difficult to slow if you've gained too much speed. Technically, it's not too challenging, but the consequences for not taking it seriously have been fatal for some people over the years. Once down to the bottom on the west side, you can head back up Radical Hill which is another loose, steep, very narrow shelf road with a couple switchbacks so tight, even wranglers have to 3-point it around.

Heading to the summit from the east


Up on top at 12,801 feet ASL


View from the Jeep heading down - you can see how the trail actually drops out of sight similar to a steep ski-slope


View from someone already down

One thing I'm finding with the Superlift, the rear lower control arm mounts take a beating in the rocks


Lunch stop. We grilled hamburgers. Jeez that was a good day.
