Nice short hike, took about an hour and a half round trip moving pretty quickly.
Saw the peak on my way down from Mt Vigil. Quick trail hike; took about 20 minutes RT.
Got seriously off trail on our [Dave B.] way to Vigil Peak.
Good little peak!
I climb this nearly every summer when I am at Bear Trap Ranch!
Nice views of Vigil from the summit!
After stopping by the ranch registration office to let them know we were on their property, we headed off through the snow to the summit of Sugarloaf. While it's a very short hike, it was peaceful and we had the little mountain all to ourselves. The dogs enjoyed romping through the snow, and the humans enjoyed the quiet at the summit and the views of the Vigil/San Luis group. Hiking partner: Husband. Dogs: Lady, Bing & Lela.
Added a repeat of this one with Jeremy after we did Cheyenne Mtn. and the Horns. Cool little finish to the day.
After climbing 4 other peaks to the west, I finished the day with this ranked 9er. 13 min. up, 7 min. down, from the TH at the entrance to Bear Trap Ranch. An absolutely gorgeous day; I climbed it in shirtsleeves.
climbed Sugarloaf on a snowy Sat morning with my friend Jeremy along with neighbors San Luis and McKinley. Sugarloaf is probably a 10 or 15 minute climb if I remember right, so adding San Luis, McKinley, and Vigil would make for a nice day of hiking.
I was desperate to get out on a windy Sunday afternoon, but was starting to lose daylight, so I randomly picked this mountain off the Pikes Peak Atlas. For a short climb, it did not let me down. .
