Ascent Trip Report

A worthy little hike that proceeds on the Sugarloaf trail, past some interesting large glacial erratics, and the ascends, about a mile up to a T intersection. You can go left to Middle Sugarloaf, up and back is about .8 mile. And/Or you can go right to North Sugarloaf, up and back is .6 mile. Both have views, but Middle Sugarloaf's are more impressive...you ascend a serious of switchbacks, climb a ladder and pop up onto a mostly open, rocky summit with views in several directions. Entire hike took less than two hours, although I was moving rather quickly to beat the rain.
