Default The Red Cone

So as soon as the snow melts. (And I mount new tires) I'd like to go run the Red Cone trail (north off 285 past Grant).
Has anyone on here done it?

Yes, we've done this trail many times. It's a very nice day. Keep in mind that it will take a while for all the snow to melt at high altitude.

Matt is right, it'll be a couple of months more before we can think about going over Red Cone.

Yes. I assumed it would be around July before it was clear. That's ok, like I mentioned, I need new tires before I go.
I heard mention of it on TrailDamage.com and looked it up. I got it mapped out, and gathered the appropriate GPS coords.

I know you guys have done this trail a lot. But I'll post an FYI on this thread about a week in advance, just in case anyone would like to tag along.

Definitely will. I'm planning on approximately the end of July-ish.

Take a look at our trip report threads on Red Cone. It was a pretty popular trail last year. You'll be hard pressed to find a trail in Colorado that someone in Rising Sun hasn't already done.
