Sugarloaf Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"This challenging trip leads to the only subalpine summit in the San Bernardino Mountains outside the San Gorgonio Wilderness; from this mountain, inspiring vistas unfold. Hikers who are looking for solitude in subalpine surroundings but are tired of encountering the typical hordes of hikers in the San Gorgonio Wilderness will find that Sugarloaf Mountain is just what they have been searching for. The lodgepole and limber pine–crowned summit provides a comprehensive view of the entire eastern end of the San Bernardino Mountains, a view unrivaled from any other point in the range. This hike follows the shortest route to the summit and requires a little route finding at the start. The hike begins at a seldom-used trailhead (the highest in the range) and avoids the conventional, longer routes starting at lower elevations."
