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.

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.
