Any one ride near Tin Cup, CO?

Every year my family and some friends go to Tin Cup, CO witch is north of Gunnison and my the Taylor Resivior. Its a great time we stay for a week and put over 500 miles on our bikes. The most we have gone in a day is 125 miles. That was a long day. I was just wondering If any one rides around there.

Here are some pics of our trips.

I see alot of rhinos and RZRs up there, they stay on the nicer trails tho. They are kinda big for some of the trails we ride (we have been known to try some dirt bike only trails), but it would still be fun.

It can be done in a jeep but its more enjoyable in a bike. We don't normally dont go that far north but we have been going for 7 years and we are looking for more trials to go on. We have rode to Aspen a few times.

Taylor pass is pretty nice, its about a mile down castle creek on the right once you get off pearl pass also. Lincoln creek road up independence pass is a nice trail to drive down

Yeah we have been on all the passes in the area. I love that area of Colorado. I wish I could live there. Taylor pass is one of my favorite pass along with pearl but over all Napoleon pass is my favorite but farther south between Tin Cup and Pitkin.

I little further north, you could hit Red cone pass, and Webster pass. Nice views at 12-13k feet . We used to ride the dirtbikes on a 60 miles loop, which is about all a dirtbike caries for fuel, but you could make it a longer trip on some of the other spurs
