Need to Know
This is generally done as a shuttle ride; leave one car at the Middle Yough Take Out parking lot before you head up to Firetower Road.
If you are a beast and want to ride back up or start at the bottom, I suggest riding Sugarloaf Trail all the way up to Sarver Road then Riding Sugarloaf Road up to the Fire Tower starting point. Enjoy.
This ride starts on Firetower Road off of Sugarloaf Road. Begin by riding away from Sugarloaf Road on Firetower Road. After some small hills, the gravel road will flatten out and hit the Firetower to McCune Gated Connector
on the left. Go around the gate and climb the singletrack up to the merge point with the McCune Trail
Stay straight/right to continue on McCune counterclockwise. Ride all of McCune Trail
and then head out the gravel road back out to Sugarloaf Road. Turn right on Sugarloaf Road, and follow the road for 100 yards or so until you see the gravel Sarver Road come in on your left. Turn left onto Sarver, and look to your right for the entrance to Sugarloaf XC Ski Trail.
Turn right onto the Sugarloaf XC Ski Trail - Upper
and follow this down and up one valley to the sledding hill. Continue past the sledding hill on the ridge until you reach the Kim Trail
sign or bomb down the sledding hill and into the woods on your left to take the new Kim/Sugarloaf Connector
. Then follow the ridge to Kim Trail
up and around Sugarloaf Knob.
ends at Upper Sugarloaf Trail
, also known as Meatloaf Trail. Turn right onto Upper Sugarloaf and descend to the next intersection. At the intersection, go right onto the Sugarloaf/Baughman Connector
. The connector will hit Sugarloaf Road again where you'll cross over and ride Upper Baughman Trail
to the Baughman Overlook which is a great spot for a break. From the overlook, continue down lower Baughman Trail
all the way into town.
