A jewel of a mountain, remote Sugarloaf is the second-highest mountain in Maine. Though the ‘Loaf in winter is primarily associated with downhill skiing and snowboarding, the 60-mile network of cross-country ski trails at the Sugarloaf/USA Outdoor Center near the base of the pyramid-shaped mountain are groomed pathways through the Maine woods with views of the snow-capped Bigelow Range. With the explosion of snowshoeing, webbed trekkers can waddle on the skate lane of all 60 miles or twist their way through the 18 miles of snowshoe-only trails. One rigorous snowshoe trip is the 8.0-mile round-trip climb to the summit of Burnt Mountain via the East Trail. From the summit, the panorama includes the slopes of Sugarloaf, and if the clouds are taking the day off, distant Mount Washington in New Hampshire and wild Katahdin in Baxter State Park. Surface quality: Tracked, skate groomed.
