Here are the only shots of a combination of Cottonwood Pass and Red Hill in Gypsum, CO. Disclaimer: Cottonwood Pass is a partially paved/dirt road that can be taken on by even a sedan but Red Hill Road is an optional offshoot that will require 4x4, possibly lockers, and definitely high clearance. Red Hill is not even an officially rated 4x4 trail but should be a solid moderate to difficult rating due to the 1000+ ft of shelf road drop-offs, large rocks, and super deep washout ruts. The difficult stuff wasn't caught on camera because my cameraman (wife) was white knuckled on any surface she could grab and was frequently giving me the stank eye. I have to say that the Bronco Sport Badlands is truly a goat and never broke a sweat. It was way more capable than our nerves on the cliffs. I had a blast, but I don't think Ashley did, lol. We gained 4000 feet of elevation climbing Red Hill. Here is my riute since Red Hill isn't an officially rated trail: Cottonwood Pass OHV Road and Redhill Road on AllTrails https://www.alltrails.com/explore/recording/cottonwood-pass-ohv-road-and-redhill-road-9b7da66?p=-1
