The trail is flagged on the main route which once on top basically follows the rim of what is actually an ancient volcano, and is an easy 2 hour hike with an interesting landscape with evidence of some of the stages of regeneration that has taken place over a wide expanse of time, and views of the surrounding hills and mountains.
Before the final fork to the right leading to the Coffee Pot parking area - is still flooded due to a beaver dam. The water is about 8 to 12 inches deep and the surface below is hard so trucks and SUV's are able to get through right now, but not smaller vehicles.
Coffee Pot Mountain is about a 50 minute drive from the Hart Bridge across the Nechako River going north on Highway 97 to the 100 Forest Service Road located across from the Winton Global Mill. It is 9.6 km from this turn-off to Coffee Pot, beginning with crossing a bridge over the Crooked River onto the Teapot Road and taking the 6503 Forest Service Road at the first fork which goes uphill to another fork where taking the right again leads directly to a cut-block, parking area and the trailhead.
