Lucked out with finding a spot at 8am on a Sunday. Enjoyable trail with spectacular views from the top of Sugarloaf Summit. Easy to add on other trails/loops if desired.

Nice, easy trail with beautiful views. You can just do the loop or go to the top (great views). Connects to many other trails which you can explore. Lot only half full before 8am and cars coming and going all morning, which seems to make parking easier than other trails.

Really pretty trail with some nice close views of the red rocks and cacti. Great if you’re on a limited timeframe!

This is an awesome trail for views, Red Rocks, cactus, birds, and quiet. Would do this every day if I lived here.

Limited parking. Maybe try to go after lunch to find a space. Climb to the overlook gets your heart rate up, but worth it. Rocky nice trail.

Gorgeous views. We went off the marked trail quite a ways and followed a dry creek bed north toward the caves in the side of the rocks. It was a nice hike!

HikingGreat!

We decided to hike this before leaving town and I’m so happy we did. It’s one of our favorites. A 7 year old beginner hiker was able to complete it. It was tough for him but he made. Must see hike for the panoramic views.

Hiking

This was probably my all favorite hike ever for the following reasons: It’s very lightly trafficked The views are gorgeous throughout, each stage offering a different perspective The ground is soft as opposed to the usual gravel or hard stones that make tripping/injury more likely The trail is fairly easy and great for kids I will say that it’s easy to go off trail in some parts but if you pay attention to the map on AllTrails it should keep you on track.

Such an amazing view at the top of sugar loaf. Currently the trails are a little muddy but not terrible. You can view the entire city from the top. It is an amazing spot to watch the sunset from the top!
