You will meet at 9AM at the Conoco Station in Bailey and follow Lexusben and Convert up to Redcone. This is an moderate trail that a stock truck with a good driver could do with no issues. There are a few areas that can be bypassed that have some medium sized rocks. The decent from Redcone is a little steep, but to those with some experience, it's not a lot of challenge. It is beautiful and spectacular and was my favorite run from the Rally last year


Post up if you plan on coming so Ben and Dan can plan accordingly as your Trail leader.

Here is the trip report from last years Rally run

Any other details (Ben/Dan) you want to share as your leading the rail?

This sounds great, the Romer Caravan will be there and I have even talked my Dad into his first offroad adventure. I had to promise, not too many bounces :D

So thats 3 Trucks for the Romers

How long of a day is this? My folks are staying with us this weekend, I'd like to take them out but this may be a bit much... what time would you expect to be off the trail?

I would expect back in Keystone around 2-3, or @ hwy 285 depending which way we decide to go. Also depends on whether or not we add radical hill (extra 1/2 hr) but that will depend on what time we get to the top of Webster pass. We may go down the south side of webster just to avoid the I-70 traffic on sunday rather than go down to Keystone. Might leave that up to the group.

I know with my Dad coming along and what happened last week there I will have to skip Radical Hill. Did it last year and it was a blast, but won't work this year.

FYI, We just ran Webster-Red Cone-Radical-Deer Creek this last weekend and the rollover did not occur on Radical hill proper. It was about a half a mile past the top over to the SW. Have no idea how it happened but we did see alot of yeahoos up there and I can only imagine. :rolleyes: But there was still police tape up so it wasn't where everyone thinks it is.

Thanks Ben, good to know. I still will have to pass as I know my dad would not like radical hill. It's taken me years to get him to finally come along and I promised him a nice and easy trail with great views.

New here. I'm a member of the Colorado Land Cruisers in the Springs and TTORA but would like to make this run with you all on Sunday. Can someone provide directions to the meet location?

Thanks,
Scott

If you are coming from the springs it would be better to meet us at county road 60 and hwy 285 which is at the town of Webster on the North side of Kenosha Pass.From the springs it would be quicker to go US 24 to hwy 9 to Fairplay and then 285 over Kenosha pass. Or if you dont mind a dirt road you could cut cross country around Lake George on county road 77. This route will take you by tarryall reservoir and dump you out around Jefferson which is on the south park side of kenosha pass. It has been several years since I have been on CR 77 so I dont know the current conditions.

Thanks. I'm on the north side of the springs. It takes me 40 minutes max to get to 470 or 20 minutes just to drive down to 24. 470 to 285 is pretty simple. Is the Conoco station in Bailey easy to find?

Once you get to Bailey, it's on the right (NW) side of 285. It's most of the way through town. You can't miss it.

I'm having to sort out some electrical issues in the 4Runner so I won't be able to make it up there this weekend. I'll have to catch you all next time.
