This moderate hike offers excellent views into the Pemigewasset Wilderness from two rocky vantage points. There are at least eight Sugarloaf Mountains in New Hampshire. Three of the Sugarloaves—North Sugarloaf, Middle Sugarloaf, and South Sugarloaf—are by Twin Mountain, but only North Sugarloaf and Middle Sugarloaf have trails. Both have open tops with excellent views, particularly into the Zealand Valley and surrounding mountains, and for relatively little effort. The trail to the Sugarloaves is shaped like a T, with the middle peak and the north peak at each end of the crossbar. The Sugarloaf Trail starts along the bank of the Zealand River. At 0.2 mile, it meets the Trestle Trail, then veers left, leaving the river behind on its approach to the two mountains.
