Descent

The Mount Sugarloaf Trail near Amherst Massachusetts runs along Sugarloaf Mountain Rd for a difficult 2.4 mile out-and-back hike to the summit.

The top of Sugarloaf is wonderful and has a great views to the South, West, and East. You can see the Connecticut River, Amherst, Hadley, Sunderland, Deerfield, and the Holyoke Range in the distance.

Expect a steep climb to the top, but the views are worth it.
