This is the closest "mountain" to College Station, TX. It's a nice break from the flat land and a nice place to watch the sunrise or sunset!

Being surrounded by plains, it's nice to get away every once in awhile. Sadly, you would have to drive pretty far to get to a nice hike. However, if you still need your fix before getting to class then you can head on over to Sugar Daddy Mountain for a morning "hike" and spend some time in nature.

Some of the best moments up on Sugar Daddy include dates, group breakfast, early morning bible studies, late night star gazing, etc. You can pretty do whatever you want!

The mountain is in Milano and you can park right on the side of the road when you get there. You'll be able to see it from the road.

PRIVATE PROPERTY

Went there and the Sheriff told us to leave because it's private property. Lucky we weren't arrested. He said he goes there often to see if people are trespassing and writing tickets.

Sugar Loaf

Park on the side of the road of 264. Entrance will be on your right side. If you come to the bridge you went to far. The entrance is painted with purple paint. Views are pretty nice and enjoyable if you catch a breezy day.

Private Property

Tried to visit this place but it's private property. I rather not trespass into someone's yard in the country...if you know what I mean. Lol Still a great view.
