Memories

I went here a lo when I was younger and would love to go back

Lots of trails

I hiked the Sugarloaf blue/white trail this past summer. Sugarloaf is beautiful, and easily accessible. It has shorter and longer trails making it accessible for many levels; Sugarloaf can be fairly challenging on a longer trail, or short and sweet on a shorter one. I wanted to reach the 'White Cliffs' which are apparently the strived-for view on Sugarloaf, the one that's really awesome. I took the blue/white trail up to the cliffs, and then back down and around, making a big circle on the mountain. This was quite a long hike, especially in the rain. It took me most of the day (for experts, probably less). The yellow trail is also quite long. The blazes and signs on Sugarloaf are sometimes unclear or poorly maintained. But it's accessible, beautiful and many friendly people to encounter on Sugarloaf, especially on nice days.

So Fun!

Great trail to walk on. Easy and fun!
