Appalachian Trail

Highlights

  • Sugarloaf Mountain is the 2nd highest mountain in Maine after Mount Katahdin.
  • Flanked to the south by fellow New England 4000 footer Spaulding Mountain.
  • The Appalachian Trail passes about a mile to the west of the summit, and the summit is reached by a 0.6 mile side trail. This side trail and a trail down the east side of Sugarloaf was originally part of the AT, but the AT has been relocated down the north side of the mountain to the west of the ski slopes.
  • Sugarloaf USA, a major ski resort, is located on the north side of the mountain.
