Cumberland Pass between Pitkin and Tin Cup is the highest standard car road for summer use in the nation, and it is in good condition. 

It was constructed in 1882 to connect Tincup with the Denver-South Park railroad in Pitkin.  From the summit you can view over 50 miles of the Continental Divide, as well as many of the abandoned mines of the area.

The Cumberland Pass Road begins at the north end of Pitkin.
