Route Description for Sugar Momma Trail

From the Allen Bill day use area, you will have to cross AB-66 on Ranger road to the Iron Springs trailhead, where you will join the Elbow Trail on the right. Pay attention to your route and the signs which can be faded, as it is easy to mistake the Fullerton Loop for Sugar Momma. This is a common mistake, so having a GPS track with you is a great idea. The Fullerton Loop junction is roughly 1.2 km from the trailhead, and the Sugar Momma junction follows in 200 m.

The trail winds up in the woods, and creates a full loop joining the Bobcat Trail. There are many clearings and great views. If you would like to extend your trip, follow the maps at the beginning to join Sugar Daddy trail.

Getting to the Sugar Momma Trail Trailhead
