Sugarloaf Mountain Reviews & Ratings
Fairly short and easy hike with an amazing view at the top. Wear good shoes as there is a lot of loose rock and you could sprain an ankle pretty easily if you aren't wearing proper shoes or paying attention. More low-key than a lot of hikes I've been on here, and the small amount of traffic made it all that much more peaceful and enjoyable. Note to couples doing this hike: I suggest getting in touch with your freaky side at the top, as long as nobody else is up there when you are. You're welcome. 10/10 would recommend
Amazing 360 views. Short, steep hike. Perfect for a sunrise or sunset.
Excellent short hike from parking area. 30-60 min depending on your fitness level.
Awesome views and not a far hike at all. Definitely worth it because it's a classic mountain visible for most of Boulder. You probably need some clearance on your car if you want to get to the start of the trail. Not like monster truck clearance, just don't come up here with a sportscar. It's a really easy trail though, I did it very hungover.
Amazing 360 degree views at the top of this Sugarloaf mountain. The hike from the Sugarloaf Mountain TrailHead is very short and moderately steep.
