Getting There

This trail begins by heading up Soldier Pass, then taking a number of other connecting trails to take a very long way back to the Solder Pass parking lot. Be aware that the Soldier Pass parking lot is small and parking nearby the lot is restricted.

Bring lots of water as this is quite a long hike.

Parking is limited. The earlier the better for arrival.

We arrived at Soldier Pass parking area at 945am and it was not only full, but there were cops monitoring the street parking - absolutely no parking nearby in this residential neighborhood! We decided to try parking at the Jordan Pass trailhead instead but got lucky and found one parking space in the Adobe Jack trailhead lot. From there we took the Adobe Jack trail, going counter clockwise, up to Brins Mesa. We took Soldier Pass to come back down. Beware, if you take the 2nd soldier pass trail (further up than the first turn out), the trail is really, really hard to find. We got lost and lost about an hour of time. A lot of people say they don’t like the end of this trail as it’s close to SR 89 and noisy, goes under power lines and near homes, etc. but by that point - 9 or 10 miles in - I was so tired I didn’t even notice.

We start the loop by Adobe Jack trail because there is no fence so you can start it before the gates of soldier pass trail parking open. Otherwise this trail is quite flat and the last portion is a little bit boring you follow houses, electric installation and the highway. Maybe the ground central trail is a better option, to skip this last part.

Nice loop of trails with some great views but would not rate as difficult. Most of it was pretty easy and the elevation wasn’t very high either. Would recommend starting your loop by connecting to Adobe Jack Trail and follow from there since that part is the most boring in terms of scenery and it’s close to traffic and houses. Also when you get up to where Brin Mesa is supposed to connect back to Soldiers Pass I would suggest taking the earlier connection that you see on the map. If you follow the red highlighted trail on the app that section of Soldiers Pass the beginning of the trailhead is hard to find as there are fallen branches blocking it and no signs anywhere. It appears that they don’t actually want you taking that connection anymore and the trail is pretty overgrown. If it wasn’t for the gps and the map on this app we would be lost. It took us about 6 hours with a few rests to complete.

A great connection of multiple trails. The Soldier pass and Brins Mesa trails had people but then I saw almost no one on the remainder of the route. The Brins Mesa trail provides some great views.
