Tin Cup is a classic old west town and is always fun to visit. The scenery is beautiful and the chipmunks are fun to watch.

Too many people, too busy, but still a place with history. Get out and walk, watch out for cars. I got more out of the drive there and the drive over the Cumberland pass.

Unless y’all are driving your own off road vehicle the first stop should be to “ATV/Jeep Mountain Adventure Rentals” on Hwy 24 in Buena Vista to rent the proper ride and get some instructions to proceed to and/or beyond Tin Cup Pass. Make sure that you have a camera, good hiking shoes and probably pack a lunch/drinks (the Subway in... More

We enjoyed visiting the old minng town of Tin Cup. I would have enjoyed it more if I had been on an ATV because without one you are in the minority. My husband, brother and I drove to Tin Cup in our SUV. We were constantly being passed by dozens of ATV drivers. The road is very dusty, so naturally... More

We rode our ATVs through this beautiful little town. Stopped in the store and purchased a souvenier. Very cool spot to see.

Tin Cup is listed as a Ghost town, but there are more live people than Ghosts. It is a vacation spot for most. There is very little in the way of old buildings and lots of new ones. If you expect to see a 'Ghost town' you will be very disappointed.

Cool old buildings in a beautiful, historic valley. There are full time residents and a store, cafe/restaurant. Fun place to drive through and see Colorado history.

We attended Sunday church there and then saw the Tincup cemetery, which is unusual with four burial mounds- one each for Protestants, Catholics, Jews and outlaws!

This is a quaint little town that we visit every time we go to Colorado. We ride our four-wheelers out of Taylor Park and head to Tin Cup to eat breakfast at Frenchy's. Afterwards we head on over to the gift shop across the street. The character and history of Tin Cup is just so interesting. It's fun to talk... More

It's a fun drive to this remote little town. We ate at Frenchy's and I was pleasantly surprised. Take a drive out to the Cemetary and see true unspoiled land. Choose a warm day, the weather changes pretty quickly there.
