Northeast of Almont and Taylor Park in the Gunnison National Forest, the region around Taylor Park and Tincup has become very popular with ATV riders. One of the best routes starts in the Tincup townsite and heads up over the Continental Divide to the St Elmo townsite. Overall, it forms a 50 mile loop combining double track and dirt roads.

Note: Colorado residents must register their off-highway vehicle with the Colorado State Parks (303) 866-3437. Out-of-state residents who bring OHVs into Colorado must purchase a Colorado Non-Resident OHV permit which is valid from the date of purchase through the following March 31. These permits can be purchased anywhere you get your hunting/fishing licenses in Colorado. All off-highway vehicles must have an approved muffler and spark arrester. These requirements are subject to change so make sure to contact the Colorado State Parks prior to using your off-highway vehicle.

Note: As of September 2007, ATV riding on Forest Service roads is only permitted if the road is unpaved and if it is not maintained by Gunnison County.

Overall, Tincup is the 50th most popular ATV riding trail of all 90 ATV trails in Colorado. Several of the better atv trails are nearby Tincup including Pearl Pass Road, Texas Lakes Trail, Gunsight Pass Road, Taylor Pass Divide Road and Devils Punchbowl.
