This trail begins gradually by following a fork of the Beaverkill River, leading you to an uphill climb to Sugarloaf Mountain. You will then pick up the Devil's Path. Just before you reach the summit, you'll see a short side trail that leads to an incredible view of the High Peaks. This trail is perfect for experienced hikers or backpackers who are seeking a bit of solitude and a good workout.
