Sugarloaf Mountain Trail is a 1.9 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Willcox, AZ that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running and is accessible year-round.
Really short but cool trail. You get to go through a small man-made tunnel, which was a surprise. The view on top is incredible. Awesome view of the monument park in addition to the valley and nearby mountains.
I'd venture to say it's the best trail in the park.
Great trail and lookout
Beautiful views for sure. We took our grandchildren up this trail. They really enjoyed it and especially enjoyed the ranger who was at the top. She took a lot of time with them. Awesome views!
The Chiricahua mountain range is just beautiful, no matter what trail you are on. This hike is easy as long as you are not affected by the elevation. Make sure to bring lots of water! The views are astounding of some amazing volcanic rock formations that are great to climb around on if you are into Bouldering at all. It is a steady climb that goes around the mountain until you reach the summit which is a ranger station, where they monitor wild fires from, in the summer time. I wouldn't want to get caught in a Monsoon up there, but if you do, there are some dugouts along the trail that could be used for shelter until the storm passes. I didn't see much animal life except for birds riding the wind which was pretty strong when I went, but there was some evidence of animals living up there. Keep your eyes peeled for a Coatimundi!
