Summary:
I went to Sugarloaf on my day off, had to. One of the sucky things about this place is that it is open to bikes only June 1 - October 31, Monday-Friday. The other sucky thing is the markings on the trails in parts. There are areas where they have come in and done some logging and clearing and trying to find the outlet of the trail in some spots was a pain and took away from the flow of the trail.
However, this place still is a great place to ride. It will give you a work out with it's vicious uphills (600-1000 vertical feet in 1/3 mile) and will test your technical skills with all the rocks. Plus the drive out here is awesome and scenic. A nice break from city life.
PS-There are no gas stations anywhere near here so fill up before you head out. I just about found out the hard way.

Summary:
Well it's short, very short...but it is brutal. I came out with a decent amount of bruises and a cut or two. I thought I could take on this hill, but the uphills are the worst here. Large steps and tons of logs.

Recommended Route:
I don't know exactly, but I think I took the white trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
If you're looking for a quick fix, this is the place, but if you're looking for something more, skip on up to Frederick and check out the watershed.
