Ascent Trip Report

My daughter and I drove up early from SF to Sugarloaf Ridge State Park where we parked at the trailhead. All the trails are well maintained and most of the time it is/was a road. There are some signs on the top with pictures showing all the surrounding peaks from Snow Mt to SF. We had lunch on the bench at the top then continued around the ridge to the south toward Brushy.
