ACCESS: The Tin Cup Trailhead at Pettit Lake is very popular with limited parking. Be ready with a back-up plan if you cannot find a parking spot. Park only in designated sites. Please do not park off the side of the road in the sagebrush or other vegetation, it destroys the delicate alpine habitat. There is some overflow parking at the Tin Cup Horse Trailhead.

Hike to Farley Lake from the Tincup Trailhead. You will hike over the moraine that divides the Alice Lake and Toxaway Lake drainages. The trail follows the glacially carved valley to Farley Lake. There is one creek crossing and you pass by several small waterfalls. Campfires are never allowed in the Alice and Toxaway drainages.
