Ascent Trip Report

After running the Bigelow's I took a one hour break and then drove over to the base of Sugarloaf. I didn't really have a plan other than running up the ski slopes. I started on an access road and weaved a bit on the eastern side of the ski area. Hit the top in 46 minutes, spent 4 minutes on top, then zig-zagged on various trail down...mostly on the Tote Road. Down in 33 minutes. Low cloud deck meant zero views. Footing was mostly very good, I was a bit beat from the four hours (16 miles) I'd done earlier that day.
