The Red Cone and Webster Pass trail makes a loop
that runs from road 285 just out of Montezuma over
Webster Pass and back down the one way trail over spectacular
The southern half of the loop leaving Webster pass
going toward Red Cone road. The loop is about
20 miles long but if you sight see it will take all day.
Red Cone is the most unique mountain I have ever seen
in Colorado. The trail over Red Cone goes to an
elevation of 12,801ft
The trail over Red Cone follows the edge of the talus slope.
Though it does not look steep it is very steep and shouldn't
be ridden if you are not an experienced rider. The tiny dots
along the ridge are Jeeps.
Trail: Park just past Montezuma where trail 285 starts. Follow 285 through the valley
and turn at the sign that points to Webster Pass. From Webster Pass follow the trail into
the next valley for a few miles until you get to trail #565.2. Follow this to trail #565 and
sign will point to Red Cone. After Red Cone leave the way you came in or make the
Swan River/Radical Hill loop
