Hiked both, awesome views, the trail has the largest single Boulder I've ever seen

Definitely loved this hike with the kids. Be sure to hit both summits, not a tremendous amount of extra time required to do both.

Really cool massive boulders along the trail and tons of Quartz.

Amazing views at the top. Though a shorter hike it defiantly has a lot of trail variation and cool things to look at. It was a tiny bit muddy so maybe don't go right after a big rainstorm.

Deux montagnes adjacentes avec une vue spectaculaire sur 360 degrés.

I hiked this trail in Friday of Father's Day weekend and it was quite busy. I hiked both Middle Sugarloaf and North Sugarloaf. The trail starts off along a stream and then splits to start a slow ascent through the woods. There are quite steep areas of rocky trail but no boulder scrambling. Middle Sugarloaf is more difficult than North but the views are well worth it. There is almost a 360 degree view from the top and there is enough area at the top so you can be by yourself.

A spectacular hike to two adjacent peaks with nearly 360 degree views to the East, South and West. Impressive glacial boulders near the bottom.

I hiked North and Middle Sugarloaf in the beginning of August 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The trail leads from the parking area to a col between the two mountains, where one branch of the trail leads to the top of Middle Sugarloaf, ans the other to the top of North Sugarloaf. The route up Middle Sugarloaf is steeper, with a couple of switchbacks and a ladder towards the end near the summit. However, the views from the summit are excellent and include Mt. Washington and the other Presidentials, as well as Ammonoosuc Lake (look for moose wading about here with binoculars) and nearby Mt. Hale and the North and South Twin Mountains. The trail up North Sugarloaf is considerably easier, with a section that passes an old abandoned quarry where chunks of smokey quartz can be found. The view from North Sugarloaf is much the same as the view from Middle. All in all, a terrific and quiet hike that generally receives little visitors.
