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 trail with some great views and nice stops. Tin Cup is always a great start or end to the trail. Check out the old cemetery.

Pass is totally free from snow. Went over the pass early this morning to a trail work job. Didn’t see another vehicle.
