“Challenging below Captiol Butte and Coffee Pot Rock; connection between Soldier Wash and Thunder Mtn”— Leslie Kehmeier
Turning east, Teacup continue to gradually climb, twisting and turning towards open views of Brins Mesa and Mormon Canyon.
Teacup levels out into a big open area just after the intersection on the far end of Sugarloaf Loop.
Take in the view before you lower your seatpost to start the fun and rowdy descent. There are a few switchbacks to navigate at first before the trail swoops down through 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 traverse the lower edge.
As you round the corner you'll be sandwiches 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 ride up the road to the Seven Sacred Pools or pedal a quick right and left to access Jordan Trail.
