Sugarloaf Mountain: Northern Peaks and Mountain Loop Professional Review and Guide

"The blue Northern Peaks Trail plus the white Mountain Loop equals a good day of hiking on Sugarloaf Mountain. And yes, it’s well worth the drive. The 3,330-acre property of Sugarloaf is privately owned and managed by Stronghold Inc., a nonprofit corporation organized in 1946 by the late Gordon Strong. Designated a Registered Natural Landmark, Stronghold maintains the mountain for the public’s enjoyment. Sugarloaf Mountain was supposedly named by explorers and settlers who were reminded of their crystalized cone-shaped loaves of sugar.

As you drive through the main entrance of Sugarloaf, there is a parking lot at the base. But follow the sign to mountain parking and circle way up the mountain to reach the West View parking lot and the start of the blue Northern Peaks Trail. The vast views from the parking lot should be a sign that you are in for a treat."

I love this mountain. There are many trails to choose from. Beware! Don’t trust their trail guide and don’t expect frequent trail blazes! Definitely visit. It’s worth it!
