Sugarloaf Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"At 4,237 feet, Sugarloaf Mountain is Maine’s second-highest peak. The A.T. went over the summit prior to the 1970s, when it was relocated to avoid ski resort development. This hike uses a 0.6-mile side trail to attain the mountaintop for a grand vista, which on clear days can reach from Mount Washington in New Hampshire to Katahdin in Maine’s Baxter State Park—a distance of more than 300 trail miles.

Views of the nearby ridgelines include Crocker Mountain to the north, the Bigelow Range to the northeast, Mount Abraham to the south and—somewhat to the west— Spaulding Mountain and Poplar Ridge. (The final link of the Appalachian Trail was completed on a shoulder of Spaulding Mountain in 1937.)"
