hgrapidRoute Climbed: Northern Peaks Trail and Sunrise Trail Date Climbed: 12/25/04  Sucess!


Sugarloaf Mountain is pretty nice. It is a shame that it has so much better an organization of trails than the actual highpoint of Maryland (Backbone Mountain).

I did the Northern Peaks trail and covered about 10 miles of total hiking. I even did some rock climbing on my way to the summit. I started at the mountain entrance parking lot, and hiked up the white trail to the East View parking lot, and then did the Sunrise Trail. Afterwards I did the Northern Peaks trail. Very fun. 25 degrees, clear skies.

EastKingRoute Climbed: Mountain Loop Trail, Multiple other routes Date Climbed: Summers 97-99  Sucess!


A classic from my pre-New Hampshire days. Fun diversion from the D.C. area. I remember the Sunrise Trail well. It was good practice for later scrambles and hikes.

shanrickvRoute Climbed: Sunrise, A.M. Thomas and Monadnock Trails Date Climbed: Multiple Times  Sucess!


I have lived in Montgomery County, Maryland since the Summer of 1997 and have climbed Sugarloaf Mountain many times, winter, spring, summer and fall. I have summited many times, mostly by myself, but also with my kids when they were as young as 5. It has become a very special place of solitude for me, as well as a great place to train for some of the larger peaks I have climbed.
