If you are headed up Webster Pass Road for an afternoon of off-roading south of Montezuma, you may want to consider a trip over Red Cone Pass. Of course, this is with the understanding that you are an experienced off-road driver with nerves of steel.

Red Cone Pass is a towering 12,801 foot summit that can only be accessed via a steep gravel road. Along the mountain ridge towards Red Cone Pass, the one way road becomes narrow with tremendous vertical drops on both sides. Once traversed, vehicles will travel down a series of switchbacks to the ghost town of Webster.

Red Cone Pass is one of the most intimidating off-road trails in Colorado and is reserved for those with a large amount of alpine driving experience. The route to reach Red Cone Pass is full of potholes, loose rock, and staggering cliffs that have injured and killed visitors. At the summit, there is room for about 15 vehicles to park and enjoy the scenery.
