Sugarloaf Mountain 10/6/2012

Posted: November 17, 2012 in Colorado, Colorado, Hiking, Travel

What a goofy fun hike! We were just planning on taking out the jeep to play in the snow but I saw this “peak” on the map with a trail up and we thought why not?  It was snowing the whole way up and cloudy, visibility was maybe 20 feet but I heard that usually you can see for miles. No worries though we liked it because it was a new experience for us. We packed light, water and Camera stuff, it was a quick hike.  At the top we looked around for a USGS stamp but only found a gouge out of one of the rocks where we think it may have been, you’ll see in the pictures. If you are ever bumming around west of boulder you should check it out.

Start Time: Early Afternoon?      Duration:  1.12 Hours     Distance:  1.28 miles    Max Elevation: 8,909′    Gain: 462′       Difficulty: 2 out of 10   Rating: Goofy  6 out of 10
