Tin Cup Canyon Recreation AreaTin Cup Canyon

Tincup Canyon, located within the Caribou National Forest, is the best place on the byway to do some backwoods camping. Two campgrounds are available there as well as hiking trails. In the 1870's, mining occurred in the area, but now very little remains of that way of life.
Tincup Canyon, perhaps the most scenic stretch of the byway, has been recognized for its natural beauty and wildlife viewing.
