    Red Cone 10/1/17

    Sean, Gary, and I did Red Cone on Saturday. This was the first time that I've driven down the southern side of Red Cone. It was slippery getting to the top and pretty icy at the top. We weren't sure what the trail would be like on the steep hill down to Webster. There were tire tracks in the snow going down the north side but it was getting colder and the snow was starting to refreeze so we turned around at the top. A few pics:











    edit: This should have been it Trip Reports. Would one of the mods please move it.

    I started with nothing, and I've got most of it left.

    Thanks for the report! Good choice not going down the hill with the snow. I like the sign, "when free of snow"

    I would like to have gone down the hill. Looks like perfect conditions for just the right amount of risk!

    Vb, wish you were there. I would have been OK being the SECOND one down. (Of course, that would depend on how you did)

    Maybe it's just that I have a bad memory but it seems like Red Cone was somehow steeper in the "old days". It's like they've rounded off some the high spots and made it a little less steep in parts. Or possibly it's just the high spots have worn down.
    A long time ago we sat on Webster Pass and watched a Jeep try to make it up the "wrong way". We were sure that it was going to go over the side.
