Beautiful 12,154-ft. pass road between historic, quaint mountain towns Overview A beautiful high-elevation route starting and ending at historic, quaint mountain towns. St. Elmo is one of the most popular ghost towns in Colorado. It has a few active businesses, including a general store and ATV rental. Tincup is a small residential community with many century-old buildings. Active businesses include the Tincup Store and Frenchie's Cafe. Located in Gunnison and San Isabel National Forest. For current conditions call Salida Ranger District (719) 539-3591. Rocky at the top with one short section of narrow shelf road at 12,000 feet that often remains snow covered into early July. After the snow clears, this trail is suitable for any high-clearance, 4-wheel-drive SUV with low-range gearing. St. Elmo can be reached by car. The optional "Old Tincup" route has one difficult rocky section.

Beautiful trail from St Elmo up to pass. Saw moose in meadows along the road. After pass the path ceases to be a road but a rocky area with no defined borders. Crazy! Then road reappears and nice trip into lake and finally Tincup. Portions not for the faint of heart!
