Parked in St Elmo and walked up the road to TinCup Pass. Not a difficult hike, though the starting elevation (10k+) and gain make the first switchback climb a little harder. Much easier after that, at least until the high meadow where we stopped.

Incredible overlook from the meadow (abt 3 miles in?), looking back south.

In late spring, creek was flowing fast with runoff so it was a beautiful hike alongside it much of the way. With all the aspen I would think this would be nice in the fall as well.
