Red Cone. Awesome trail run and the view from the top is one of my favorites

Oh that is a great trail. I love every inch of it and long for it all winter, if I had a snowmobile, I'd probably check into riding up there and snowboarding down the hill. It gets snowed out relatively early and dries a little late, but a good trail. You can also get to it from the road that splits off loveland pass right where keystone begins (cant remember the town from the life of me Montezuma???) Fun stuff, beautiful scenery, and a great place to lose your breath coming down a steep hill. If you are afraid of steeps or cliffs don't go, but it's really not as bad as everyone says. I rode the trail and crawled my 80 toy pickup (built fairly well 5:29s, rear detroit, flex to heaven, fuel injection, and swampers) down the "hill of doom" that I had heard so much about for the first time after pinching my rear brake line and losing pretty much all my brakes without problem. The thought of losing brakes altogether made me keep my seatbelt off and ready to jump though (no doors either). The pics do not do that trail any justice, no matter how good the pic.

That hill is nothing. It was kind of a let down.

Try it on a 300lb. 650 dirtbike sometime, it will get your attention.

By the way, Randy Hickenbottom (S. Park Ranger) would like to talk to us about doing work/ possible adoption on Hall Valley (south side of Webster). It needs some attention and working with Randy would be a very good thing for the club. He is quite pleased with the contributions 4x4 and other OHV clubs have made to the Hayman area and Rampart Range.

I've hiked in area's like that, but have yet to find a track that high you can legally take a vehicle on anywhere up here. Looks like fun.

Just north of there the fun continues, all over the Swan River valley. Great area. White River Nat'l Forest IIRC, which is kinda a bummer (tend to be OHV unfriendly).

Why sir, in your hydration system of course! You can insulate the bags!

Sounds like you are talking about Georgia pass that drops down into the Swan... That is a fun area.. generally a bit less crowded than Red Cone.

In years past it was a kick to watch people try to open up Webster pass.
As many of you may know there is a BIG snow drift (more like a wall) that usually goes across webster Right at the top just before it joins with Red Cone...
