Trail Information

Highlights

Does a short, narrow, white-knuckle 4WD climb sound like a thrill? Then Radical Hill might be the trail for you. This intense trail begins with a few rock obstacles to test your vehicle's ability before testing your own mental ability on the narrow switchbacks up Teller Mountain. Be sure to stop and check out the cabin before you work your way up. Once you reach the summit, enjoy 360-degree views of the mountain peaks, including many surrounding trails like Red Cone.

The season's first real winter storm has moved through, and daytime temps are not enough to melt the snow. Numerous reports indicate there is impassable/dangerous snow on the trail at this time and it is likely going to be done and closed for the season.

Coming from Red Cone we ran this going uphill. We took the far right line on the rock obstacle (waypoint 2) which was fun. My buddies 80 series received a little scratch on the back passenger window and dented window molding taking this line. The rest of trail is a shelf road with one section of what I would call serious off camber. I was pretty clenched and had to remind myself to breathe. I found the off camber section to rival Devils Punchbowl on Schofield pass. I have not done Black Bear yet so can't comment on that.

Radical is a perfect name for this trail. If you want a fun challenge this is the trail for you, running it uphill would be the harder way to go. This is one of the rockiest trails I have been on with tons of loose rocks scattered along the trail.
