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! :)

just a few quaint houses and an interesting country store in a pretty high mountain valley. There is a scenic road that leads form TIn Cup over the pass and into the historic town of Pitkin.

A small village in an awesome mt valley is all that remains of a once roaring mining boom town. Surrounded by beautiful peaks and the Gunnison National Forest, there are old miner's cabins, a very decent cafe for breakfast and lunch (try the Tincup Pie), a General Store, and an old cemetary. Definitely don't visit if you have trouble with... More

We ended up in Tin Cup by error when we took an incorrect turn. This "Ghost Town" caters to ATV lovers and doesn't appear to offer much else.

10,000 feet and counting. People lived here in the 1800's. Eat at Frenchys and ATV your way to the higher peaks.

Don't miss the cemetery. Ask in town how to get their. Also, if Frenchy's is open, it's a great place for lunch.

We go to Tin Cup annually, and this year took a friend of ours and went in on ATVs from the Pitkin side. Great trip that was capped with a stop at Frenchies Cafe for peach pie. This year on our trip on a Thursday, Tin Cup was packed! Most people I have ever seen there.

This is such a neat little place! Being here is like stepping back in time! The people are all friendly, salt-of-the-Earth types who really care about where they live. My husband and I stopped here for lunch and had a really great experience at KaCyn's BarBQue food truck! We are both from Texas originally, and have very strong opinions about... More

This place is LOST in time. WOW it is off the grid. Don't expect many conveniences. Hard to believe people live here in winter.
