Mount Sugarloaf State Reservation reviews
We grew up in the area and were back for a family memorial service. We took our adult children for a view from the top. There were some great picture opportunities and fun was had by all. more »
The best part is hiking up the road or trail and getting to the top for the view... never the same and always breath taking.... enjoy the views!! more »
This place is Absolutely beautiful at the top of the mountain.. there are a couple paths to hike up. One easier then the other or you can hike up the paved road. I hike up with my wife an 9 year old with my 10 month old baby on my back. It was a little challenging but so worth it . About a 35 min hike up at a slow pace.. BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL
Mt. Sugarloaf St. Reservation is a great place to hike or take the drive up the southern peak. There is also a northern peak with hiking trails. I have hiked both mountains numerous times and both have great views. The vistas are better on South Sugarloaf but the overlook on North Sugarloaf is worth a visit too in my book. On the summit of South Sugarloaf is an observation tower and places to have a picnic or cookout. I haven't driven up in a while, not sure if it's still free or if there's a fee. Either way, I highly recommend this Reservation for locals and visitors to explore.
