“The trail, named 'Sugar,' is an acronym for Skyline to Horse Gulch Road, or SHGR.”
— Brian Welsh
A multi-use connector trail from Skyline Trail
to Horse Gulch
road, this trail can be started from either Horse Gulch
TH, with a 2.1 mile gentle climb, or using Skyline Trail
on a 1.7 mi switchback climb.
This route can be done as a big day ride dropping into the "Gulch" for a variety of options, a town loop or a Horse Gulch
, 7.8 mile out-and-back.
The trail is generally easy to find and follow with all the cairns. It is well laid out, brilliantly cut and super buttery with some fun switchbacks.
