Took a trip up Red Cone Pass and Radical Hill this past weekend with a few other members. I've been on a few other trails in that area but never these two, really awesome area! Neither are hard trails, but the scenery is tough to beat and the trails were still really enjoyable. Good group of guys, nice meeting all of you!!

Here's a few pics from the day, only a few with the whole group as we were usually a little ways behind lol ...

I still can't believe he not only hit your jeep, but that he just kept on going!!! What a dipshit. First he almost hits me and then he DOES hit you!!!

Great pics. I found myself looking at the jeeps first and going back to check out the scenery. :)
That's a great looking flag you guys put up too.

I got a bunch of pics but I can't post them apparently because I'm a noob to the forum. Lol

Hey Joel, it is a bit of a pain...the AutoGuide app never works for me. So, I just upload my pics to the photobucket app, grab the link and then post them up. Hope that helps...welcome to JKO :x

Nice pictures. I haven't been up there in a couple of years. I like the flag. The last time I was up there, the Webster Pass trail had a wash out near the top that made it too narrow for anything but ATVs. Did you notice if that has been repaired? I know you didn't go down that way, but you could see it from the top.

I know exactly the spot you are referring to. We did not go down and look. There was still a good sized snow field blocking the pass on that side anyway, so the point was moot.

I know the Forest Service ran a bulldozer up there a couple of years ago and fixed it. Of course it keeps washing out, so I have no idea as to the current state of it.

I drove through it once when it was marginal. The washout was about a foot deeper than the trail and just barely wide enough for the JK. When my front tire dropped in the gravel started to slide. I gunned it just to get through it before I had a really bad day. It was heart stopping for sure.
