225 Steps

Tincup, CO, United States
0 Kudos
Flag
During our travels back and forth form the Tincup area we spent quite a few days in the Gunnison County vicinity bit south west of Tincup. One of our favorite things to do is to camp. We had already spent time at a campground and decided to do the forest. We went to Morrow Point Pine Creek Trail and hiked down the 225 steps to the canyon. Then we hiked the 2 mile trail along the river to Marrow Point Reservoir. The hardest part was hiking back cup the trail and climbing those steps. We were starving and drove to Almont to eat at Three Rivers Smokehouse. We also spent some time at the Blue Mesa the next day. When a storm came in the Blue Mesa got rough.
Story Details

Culture and experiences

Gunnison River Farms
We happened upon this farm in a tiny little town of Austin. Its over 100 years old. We stayed in one of the historic cabins and we had to listen for the dinner bell to go to the lodge to the big farm table for our meals. So unique! We had lamb and some of their fresh raised veggies. I highly recommend it
Crested Butte
This is the cutest little victorian town. We did some hiking and biking here too

Ohio City
We drove through Ohio City and since I am from Ohio I was hoping it would be great. But there wasn't much there. A ranch outside of town.
Alpine Tunnel south portal
Theis tunnel was built in 1880. Its cuts right through the continental divide. The elevation was over 11,00 ft. I got winded right away.
