BCP392 - Sugarloaf Lookout Tower
Our trip to the lookout was a real adventure with the need to hike through an area of clear cutting, snow at certain points and two challenging rock bands (which can be avoided to the south) to make our way to the top.
Our trip log showed a round trip return distance of 12.8 km and an elevation gain of 2900 feet from our parking location at the fire lookout gate.
The hike was fantastic with the amazing views of the mountains of the High Rock Range along the Continental Divide to the west. Tornado Mountain to the west looks like a future hiking opportunity with a cap at the top as well.
Finding the cap at the top was challenging with all the snow cover. Thankfully revisiting a few spots resulted in us finding the cap.
Just a great hike and lookout location - TFTH and the numbers and pictures will be posted shortly.
