I'm gauging interest in a possible night run up Red Cone this July. It's got to be before or after the Ghost Town Run. So I'm thinking we do Friday night the 15th or Saturday night the 16th and the other options would be Friday night the 29th or Saturday night the 30th.
I'm leaning towards the 29th or 30th.

It would be an up and over run because I'm not coming down Webster in the dark.
My plan is to go up and over Red Cone, come up the back side of Radical Hill, drop down into the Georgia Pass road and then folks can choose to go out to Breck and come back on 70 or go over Georgia Pass and come back on 285. I will be going over Georgia Pass to 285. There will also be a chance to split and leave through Montezuma and come back on 70 as well.
This would not be a good run for beginners. I'd rather have folks who have run this trail before and are familiar with it, or at least people who are well versed in off-roading. And good lights are definitely going to be helpful. A locker is very handy on this trail for some super flexy spots.

I'd like to get started before sundown. We will probably be out well after midnight. Bring snacks and water. Bring warm clothes. It might be 90 in Denver but it could possibly be 40 up on top at night, you never know with Colorado summer weather.
I'd rather not eat dinner out on the trail, so please eat dinner before the trailhead or at the trail head ahead of time.

COMS: I'll have CB/FRS/GMRS

Oh that does sound fun!! I too would be interested, depending on the date. I've really been slacking on rewiring my lights to the replacement SwitchPros. Lol! Time to get busy on it!

I updated the OP with date options.
I'm leaning towards either Friday the 29th or Saturday the 30th.

What say all of you?

@bh4rnnr Does this sound like something you want to get in on? Either drive it or ride along with me? Great chance for some awesome pictures.

Probably trailhead about 630ish. I have pictures of the Little Rock garden before switchbacks that say 7:15. Keep in mind this was just two vehicles.

I think it was close to 2 h bottom to top with 5 vehicles when we ran it in august 2019 with @3rdGen4R

Travis, i'd definitely be interested in this, especially riding along to take pics:). Friday the 29th would be ideal for me. Can't do Saturday since I work on Sunday.

Let's move forward with that for now. We're still a ways out obviously. But let's shoot for that.
