This is one of my favorite local hikes. I’d recommended the steeper ridge trail (blue blaze) up and the the longer gentler slope down. Fantastic views!

Beautiful trail, great views. Nice place for a picnic lunch at the top overlooking bucolic New England countryside.

Perfect for hiking with family and friends! There’s a beautiful view up top and families with children or elders can drive up to enjoy the view as well! You can even see U.Mass from the top 

Great! Took my five year old and one year old. It was tough at times, but we managed to go down and back up the blue trail.

fun, short hike. good views from the top. we climbed the steeper part and went down the longer, gentler one. it's only a 15-20 minute strenuous hike up to the top. there are also different branches in the trail you could avail to get to the summit.the fun part is that you could, after visiting the south, continue to the north sugarloaf mountain!

I love the convenience of having a descent hill in my area, I'll run from my house to the base of mt. Sugarloaf and can be up and back in less than an hour on a slow day. completely shaded until you get to the top, making it great for my dog and myself on a sunny day. awesome sunrise/sunset views, allows you to see great views of Deerfield, Sunderland, and Amherst. water is also available at the top as long as you are going during "open" hours, but if you are an early riser or late owl I would suggest bringing your own if you or your dog wants water during the trip.
