Webster & Red Cone Passes, Colorado

W

Webster & Red Cone Passes are truly amazing destinations within reach of Denver for single day tours.  Not only will you enjoy staggering views, alpine tundra and utterly “bald” mountain tops; but you will also experience some of Central Colorado’s best 4 wheeling.  A number of other Jeep trails can be accessed from this same area including: Sante Fe Peak, Deer Creek, Glacier Mountain, Saint Johns and Radical Hill.

Late summer (mid July/August) wildflowers become quite thick within the high altitude basin of these mountain peaks.  This explosion of blooms makes for a good place to eat a picnic lunch and work on our closeup/macro photography.

While the “Summit County side” of the pass is relatively lush with vegetation and streams, the “Park County” side is a sight you likely have never seen before.  Crumbled mountain sides void of life, tower above our road boasting a bright red earth that looks like you might be visiting Mars.  Unlike Mars this is not a lifeless area. It is not uncommon to come across some of Colorado’s photogenic wildlife… Mountain Goats, marmots, chipmunks, eagles and a variety of songbirds frequent this area.

Notes:

  • Webster & Red Cone Passes get very high in elevation and as such the trails stays packed with snow late into the summer season.  Usually this destination is accessible from Mid/Late June until late September.
  • People afraid of rough roads and large side drop offs might not enjoy this destination.
