“Tough trail below Captiol Butte and Coffee Pot Rock; link between Soldier Wash and Thunder Mountain.”— Condor77 77
Turning east, Teacup continue to gradually climb, twisting and turning towards open views of Brins Mesa and Mormon Canyon. Teacup then levels out into a big open area just after the intersection on the far end of Sugarloaf Loop.
Take in the view before you start the descent. There are a few switchbacks to navigate at first before the trail drops down into the trees and scrub to a giant slickrock bowl.
Coffeepot Rock rises higher above you as you get closer to its base. From here you'll negotiate several rocky steps while traversing the lower edge.
As you round the corner you'll be sandwiched between the mountain and a cluster of houses before the last rocky and rooty descent to Soldier Pass Road.
At the end of the trail, you can turn left and run up the road to the Seven Sacred Pools or pedal a quick right and left to access Jordan Trail.
