Interesting Little Almost Ghost Town

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.

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.

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.

Took a drive out to Tin Cup. It was a ghost town but people still live there. There is a small store and a cute little church. There are loads of 4x4 trails in and out of there.

First off, this review is for the road and not the village. We started in St. Elmo and made it to the top of the switchbacks but there is just a bit of snow drift left that is blocking the road. Maybe another week and it'll be clear. The drive requires high clearance and 4wd, however, I imagine that most... More

The main passes to Tincup can be done with a higher clearance family car. Tincup has one souvenir, small re-supple store that is open during season selling tin cups of all things. Interesting to see all the old structures. Beautiful scenery. Allow plenty of time to take pictures.

Started in St Elmo up towards Tin Cup Pass. We thought we may have made a mistake half way up in our stock SUV but managed to make it to the pass. We smartly decided to head back the way we came and were glad we did when we read about the backside to the town of Tin Cup was... More

Took the road over the mountain via Tincup to go to Mirror Lake. Nice little village and has a RV park, too. A bit far off for me to stay longer but who likes it quiet - check Tincup out. And its Whiskey definitely! :)
