Trail Information

Highlights

Expansive views of the Collegiates, Napolean Mountain, Green Mountain, Terrible Mountain, and rugged peaks are everywhere you look. Cumberland Pass packs big views of Colorado's mountains and connects two of the most quaint little towns around in Tin Cup and Pitkin while making its way all the way down to Taylor Park and Reservoir. People flock from all over the country for a summer vacation in this area of Colorado, and once you experience it yourself, you will know why. Cumberland Pass is part of the famous Miners Loop that includes Tincup Pass and Hancock Pass and a wonderful route for overlanding on a summer Colorado weekend!

Easy and fun with bumps over the whole thing. Nothing was remotely hard, just bumpy. Totally dry and multiple ghost towns around the area.

Ran this trail with a large group so it was pretty dusty. The trail is pretty rocky and bumpy but an easy trail.

Shoveled some on the Tincup side to make it wide enough for Jeeps. Open for the season but I would not take a big truck or duelly.

Open for 5.5 miles on the Pitkin side. Deep snow at that point.
