    Teapot Mountain Trail

    The Teapot Mountain Trail may be short, but some steep sections elevate its ranking from easy to moderate. However, the huffing and puffing comes with a remarkable reward! Revel in stunning views of Summit Lake shimmering below once you reach the top.

    Route Description for Teapot Mountain Trail

    The Teapot Mountain Trail may be short but shrug this one off as easy! Tackle an easy-to-follow path as it climbs through the trees to reach a stunning viewpoint of Summit Lake at the top. Bring lots of water and a snack for the top—you’ll want to spend some time soaking in the scenery. Bring your kids and dog on this walk!

    From your car, follow the path straight up the mountain! Some opt to turn this into a lollipop route by creating a loop at the top, but our route takes you there and back. Spend time basking in the scenery of the rugged landscape below before turning around and heading back the way you came.

    Do note that the mosquitos can get pretty bad, making it essential to pack bug spray!

    Getting to the Teapot Mountain Trail Trailhead

    To get to the start of the Teapot Mountain Trail, head to the Teapot Mountain Recreation Site. You’ll follow the highway before reaching a gravel road!
