Sugarloaf Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"The rounded Sugarloaf Mtn. (9952´) is the tallest summit in the San Bernardino Mountains outside the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Located at the interface of two vegetation zones, it supports both the rich forests of Jeffrey pines and white firs common in the San Bernardino high country, and the juniper and pinyon pine woodland of the desert slopes. In late August and early September, lucky hikers may see the rare black swallowtail butterfly (Papilo bairdi). A forest service road leads high onto the shoulder of the mountain. This hike takes advantage of the road and follows the easiest path up the east ridge to the summit."
