Tincup Pass Jeep Road
For those needing to travel from St. Elmo, in Chaffee County, to Tincup and perhaps onwards to Crested Butte, this is a very scenic (and notedly rougher) alternative to Cottonwood or Monarch Pass. The jeep road is fairly well-graded near Tincup and St. Elmo but does get rockier and much steeper near the 12,200' Tincup Pass. Amazing panaoramas and lakeviews can be found along this ride. While technically modest, this trail demands significant physical endurance due to the long sustained climbs, all above 10,000'.
St. Elmo end.
