Sugarloaf Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is the highest peak outside the wilderness in the San Bernardino National Forest. You do not need a wilderness permit, but you will be afforded all the views of the San Gorgonio area you can possibly imagine. This trek is a pretty straightforward journey through high alpine forest nearly topping out at 10,000 feet. The short distance and relatively light altitude gain would seem to make this an ideal outing with dogs, and it is, provided that they are well conditioned before you go. This is by far one of the rockiest trails you can take in Southern California, and consequently can be extremely hard on your pet’s paws. There is no water along this route either, so bring plenty."
