Tin Cup Trail # 96


The Tin Cup trail is 15.0 miles long. It begins at Road 639.1 and ends at Trail 24 (Idaho State Line). The trail follows along Tin Cup Creek and has 3 creek crossings which can be dangerous during high water.  About 3/4 mile after the first creek crossing is a rock slide which offers a nice vista.  A damn is located on Tin Cup Lake.  The lake provides good fishing opportunities.  The climb past the lake up to the Divide is steep but provides access into the White Cap area.  This is a good stock trail but grazing opportunities are minimal.  

There is adequate parking and a stock ramp is located to the south of the trailhead.  There are dispersed camping sites south of the trailhead.

The trail is open for the following uses: Horseback Riding and Hiking.
