    Default Red Cone - Weekend of 8/17, 8/24, or 8/31



    This is one of my bucket list trails and I want to try and do it this year. I will most likely need some help getting through the lower rutted portion so I would like to have at least 1 or 2 other guys along with a winch. Trying to plan far enough ahead that we can get a decent group, I can do any of the weekends listed (please note 8/31 is Labor Day weekend). I would be open to camping a night and doing some more trails in the area if there is interest in that, let me know!

    I am a maybe. Have run it three times. Last time issues with an extremely slow group who would not let anyone pass. Jim remembers that one I am sure.

    I'm super keen on this, 8/31 is the only one of those weekends I'd be available. Also up for camping Saturday night and doing Webster pass or other trails as well.

    I would not camp so having a start time around 9:30 or 10 would be appreciated. I need to check my schedule. We probably should set a date.

    8/17 or 8/24 please!! Wife said this is her favorite trail so she'll probably want to come along. There's some nice camping close to the trailhead we spent the night at last trip. Then, I drank too much Caribou Lou and had the worst headache of my life all the next day.

    Next question.... Who's up for Radical Hill after????

    I could be up for Radical (and others to the west), but I'll be quite careful heading up at the first difficult rock spot - that's where I bent my rear driveshaft on the last visit.

    Thank you all for the comments, looks like we have a lot of interest with 8/31 in the lead. One of my dogs will need surgery in mid August so at this point 8/31 is the earliest weekend I will be able to go, but we still need to confirm dates which Im hoping to know this week. My other option is the weekend of September 13th, how does that look for everyone interested?
