Trail Overview
Napoleon Pass
Climb along Continental Divide with 12,000-foot views at Napoleon Pass. You'll cross several creeks, so expect to get muddy. Take time to explore Tincup Cemetery and the old Gold Cup Mine. This route may close unexpectedly for weather.
Getting There
We start at the White Church in Tincup, which can be reached from St. Elmo or via F.S. 765 from the Taylor Park Trading Post at the Taylor Reservoir.
