ATV Highlights and Tibetan Heaven
So we found out that this area is touted by the state of Colorado as the best ATV area in the State. It was evident that the most popular things that people do here are ATV and dirt biking. Taylor Park is the area where Tincup is located. We found a place...
So we found out that this area is touted by the state of Colorado as the best ATV area in the State. It was evident that the most popular things that people do here are ATV and dirt biking. Taylor Park is the area where Tincup is located. We found a place to stay over an hour away, a really awesome RV park in Almont, Colorado that has cabins too. The view is stunning. Its only 31 miles but it took us over an hour to get there through the beautiful mountain passes. We made sure to get enough gas in Almont. We ate at the Pizza Inn in Gunnison before leaving with a full stomach full of Philly Cheesesteak sandwich and their legendary chicken and spuds. We spent several days tooling around Avon, Colorado. We ate at several places and tried to make them different foods. The first place was the Sherpa Café. Awesome Tibetan and Nepalese food. The lentil soup was amazing and the Tibetan noodles. The vegetable samosas and dip were outstanding. Got our coffee, scones and pesto wraps at Mochas in Avon for the trek back across the mountains to Tincup. We saw many ATV riders not he main streets. They all looked like novices. I'm sure the seasoned riders were in the mountains.

This was an amazing trail. Pretty flat. Saw the Gunnison river several times and awesome views of the sheer walls of the canyon.
