Trail Overview

This is a short trail that hangs off of Soldiers Pass but is no less difficult. This trail is filled with narrow sections and slickrock, making it an even more challenging trail more so in the snow or rain. To view the Devil's Sinkhole, you can either hike up to it or risk rolling by traversing the 7-foot fall made of slickrock. Pictures include do not do it justice. Just be prepared and pick the correct lines or you will find yourself on your lid. You will need to get a permit from Recreation.gov, this permit will have the gate codes on it. After entering the gate of Soldiers Pass you make a sharp right turn to the start of Tea Cup.


The entrance is made for high-clearance vehicles, stock Jeeps would rub. Adding the slickrock will make for an interesting hard right turn. Narrow sections that have larger trees on one side and a shear cliff on the other. One wrong move and you will find yourself at the bottom. Once you pass the entrance and narrow sections you find yourself challenged with a 30% incline waterfall waiting for you to pick the wrong line and roll.
