Started at 11. Fine if you're used to desert heat. Our dog was struggling a bit on the way back. Beautiful views. Recommended!! Next time we'll go at 9am though. It will be more crowded then.

Wonderful easy trail. We arrived early so still enough parking at the smaller trailhead parking lot. Free parking. Great views. Lots of connecting trail options. Not too crowded.

Nice quick trail. Great views. Some climbing so moderate is probably a better rating.

We did this trail as a family at 5:30pm, with 2 kids and Grandma. It was a great trail and worth it for the incredible views. Parking wasn’t an issue for us and the trail guide was clear for us, outside of posted signs there are plenty of rock bundles to guide you. We stayed on Tea cup but you could veer left where the trail splits and head through Sugar Loaf Loop. Great easy hike.

Just enough challenging areas that we decided to only stick with the easy trails after this one. Beautiful scenery and flora! Loved the Snapping Turtle Rock. we went at 7am and it was not busy at all. Definately follow the trail map on this app or it is easy to get off course because it is not well marked. Would definately recommend!

I always press “record” on the AllTrails app so I can glance at the app’s map and keep track of my position on the trail and not get lost. I ran this trail with my 19-year old daughter with a 7AM start and we only saw 2 people on the trail. We took the “lollipop” in a counter clockwise direction and the views were amazing! Easy to follow the trail, though you have a few options that all lead the same way

We did it with our 2 year old (who hiked by herself), I would not recommend doing that there were some scary parts for her to do and she had to be carried on the way back. Beautiful views

Easy trail starting right out of a quiet little neighborhood. Lovely at sunset. Definitely worth getting all the way to the end of the trail off shoot onto coffee pot rock - this was the best view of the trail. Lots of little wildlife throughout and some shade.

Loved the views. Felt like we could have kept going off on different trails. While we did pass people, we were alone for a majority of the trail.

Beautiful trail. Kid friendly. Me and my small family did the majority of the trail and turned around near the end towards the little climb up to the last views. This was my 8 year olds and my puppies first hike/trail. We took our time with several stops along the way. And even a quick lunch break towards the end. Made it in at 8:30 and was slightly crowded going in as well as coming out. We made a good morning walk out of it. Could have definitely been done through and through in under 1.5 hours. Dog friendly. Kid friendly. They both enjoyed themselves and could keep up fine while having fun.

This trail is actually really nice. However, a portion of it is off trail. That means no markings or guideposts. However, it is still a clearly worn path mostly clear of any overgrowth. It's not too bad if you take the right steps to avoid getting lost and it offers nice views and a good chance that you'll be alone on this portion of the trail. If you have a bit of spirit of adventure, this isn't anything too intimidating. HOW NOT TO GET LOST First, when starting this trail, open AllTrails, select this trail, and start making a recording. This will give you a map with a red line overlay that shows the trail and a blue dot representing your location. This will make it clear if you've gone off the path. Second, you'll notice that the path leaves teacup trail in 2 places - a western branch and an eastern branch. Ignore the eastern branch. Use the western branch to leave and return to teacup trail. The western branch is marked by a simple metal pole marking the trail. The eastern branch is marked by a wooden sign indicating a couple of trail paths. I recommend the western path because it is more clearly worn and it's easier to hike. The eastern path will require you to scale a few short rocks - nothing extreme but will require hands to push yourself up. It's also easier to go down side trails on the eastern path as this area is less clearly worn. For an easier hiking experience, stick to the western branch off of teacup. For the end, this trail ends really wherever you want it to. Follow the path long enough and there is no more path at all, you're just walking alongside the edge of a cliff. Nice views but decide for yourself if you're comfortable with the risk. I turned around just a bit before the very end, myself.

Easy hike. A little tough to find the spur to the overlook but you’ll see it if you look around.

Not marked very well in certain areas. We got lost a few times. Over all, gorgeous and a great hike.

Nice little short hike. My husband and I completed it with our dog. The trail isn’t marked great, but we didn’t have too much trouble finding our way. Beautiful views and scenery the whole hike.

Right after the loop at the almost halfway point the trail becomes very lost and involves some rock climbing. Beautiful!
