If you want to spend several days 4 wheeling down beautiful trails this is the place to start at. Purchase a map of the trails so you don't get lost, pack a lunch and enjoy the beautiful scenery and togetherness as a family or friends! (Don't go alone though as you could have break downs and be stranded). We hauled... More

After taking a wrong turn an ending up driving our rental car on a road geared to Jeeps and ATVs, we finally (after 1 1/2 hrs driving 14 miles!) crested a ridge to see Tin Cup in the valley. Tin Cup is now more of a resort ghost town with year round residents. Many original structures remain, but they have... More

This is an excursion we always take friends on when they come visit. The scenery is breathtaking and there are lots of opportunities to get out and stretch your legs. The whole area gets you thinking about what life was like during an earlier time.

We vacation in the area each year and during our visit, we like to attend church on Sunday morning at Tin Cup. The church there is very welcoming and friendly and you come away feeling refreshed and uplifted.

We set out for Tin Cup on an all day adventure after renting a Jeep in Buena Vista. Our first stop was the ghost town of St. Elmo and then we started our trek over the Tin Cup Pass. The rocky trail will definitely put your gut in check but it is an absolutely breath taking ride. On the down... More

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.
