North Sugarloaf and Middle Sugarloaf Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"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."

"There are at least eight Sugarloaf Mountains in New Hampshire, likely named because they are fairly low in elevation and support abundant maple trees, and thus maple syrup. Three of the Sugarloaves are by Twin Mountain, but only North Sugarloaf and Middle Sugarloaf have trails. They are also the most obvious, in plain view where Route 302 crosses Route 3. Both have open tops, with excellent views, particularly into the Pemigewasset Wilderness, and for relatively little effort." Read more
