There are two trailheads that you can use to get there. Both are accessed by 89A. To get to the closest trailhead to Soldier Pass trail is by turning North on Soldier Pass Road to its conclusion. At the other trailhead you will need to take Jordan Road to its end, then hike either Jordan trail or Brins Mesa to get to Soldiers Pass. Both trailheads require a Red Rocks Pass. There are machines to buy a pass at both places.

Great trail with amazing views almost the entire way. About half the trail is partially shaded which provided some relief for the afternoon heat. We made this a loop trail by going left for 1.7 miles and then following the Brin Mesa trail then taking the Cibola Pass and then Jordan Trails back to parking lot. Total distance was 5.5 miles.

Very nice hike, if we could get an earlier start it would've been better, gate opens at 800 am. Saw some mule deer while we were waiting. it would be amazing to hike this during rainy season, many dry creeks, very pretty views.

Loved this hike! We started at the parking lot on Park Ridge Dr and hiked Cibola Pass to Jordan to Soldier Pass and then back down Brins Mesa! Slightly strenuous hike up the canyon and my favorite part was the turn back down on Brins Mesa! The views and terrain were beautiful! I would love to do this hike in reverse next time :)
