Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the end of Marlborough Ave and followed a dirt road east until reaching a use trail that takes off from the 'main road' near a couple of graffiti-filled concrete reservoirs.
This area experienced a fire recently so the trail that switchbacks its way up the north side of Sugarloaf was obvious and easy to follow. The footing was very good and there were no loose rocks to contend with so this is definitely a route to consider. This was an out and back hike.
