Tin Cup Creek Trail

Darby Montana

Listing Type: National Forest Trail
City: Darby Montana
Region: Glacier Country

Tin Cup Creek Trail (96) is in excellent condition. The early part of this trail is notable primarily for the pleasant forest, varied plant life and easy walking. Mountains and rock cliffs are not much in evidence because the valley is broad and heavily timbered. At the first stream crossing, about 2.5 miles from the trailhead, the mountains become visible and from there the aspect of the trail changes.

Look for wildflowers along this trail. Yellow Coralroot, a member of the orchid family, grows in deep shade in this area.

Length: 14.6 miles. Low difficulty. .Trail Begins: Forest Road 639.Trail Ends: Trail 24 (State Line)

Directions: On Highway 93, drive to the southern edge of Darby and turn west onto Tin Cup Road. The trailhead is 3.5 miles from the highway on an improved road that becomes somewhat rough for the last mile. To reach the trailhead, turn left and cross the bridge over Tin Cup Creek. There is a large parking area and a stock ramp near the bridge.
