    Route Description for Sugarloaf Mountain Trail

    If you are after a rough and rugged adventure in the San Bernardino Area that features some steep sections of trail and beautifully atmospheric forests, then you should certainly check out the Sugarloaf Mountain Trail.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way along the road as it leads through the forest to the southwest, before bending to the southeast. Eventually, you will pick up the Sugarloaf Trail as it branches off to the right and begins climbing more sharply uphill.

    As you work your way up the mountainside to the southeast, take some time to appreciate the natural beauty of your woodland surroundings, before the trail turns to the southwest on the final approach to the summit. After climbing up the rugged terrain of the ridge, you will arrive at the top of Sugarloaf Mountain and experience some beautiful views of the surrounding California landscape. Once you have had your fill of the views, simply head back down along the same route to return to the trailhead where you started.

    Getting to the Sugarloaf Mountain Trail Trailhead
