Beautiful trail. We only walked the left portion from the bike trail to the peak and back. The left portion is steep at times but offers beautiful fern and moss covered scenery. Toward the halfway point large boulders dot the forest floor. The outlook at the peak is beautiful albeit slightly over grown (no river view but the valley is magnificent). The trail is worth the effort.

Decent hike on a somewhat steamy day with the threat of rain. Not too crowded either. Definitely start out going left at the trailhead. Steep first 1.9 miles then levels out. When you reach the crossing of the road stay on the path to the left (Baughman trail) and go 0.2 to the car park and scenic overlook. Double back and pick up the trail that crosses over Sugarloaf Rd. Trees at marked “red” along the trail. The entire back half of the trail is mostly downhill. Pay attention as there are lots of loose stones and potential for widowmakers when blustery.

Nice hike. Definitely continue to the overlook. Nothing special compared some of the other trails nearby but great walk in the woods.

A beautiful trail, highly recommended. We start by going left; as most reviews have mentioned, the inclination is steady and mild - we almost feel we have gone the reverse way. When reaching the sugarloaf road, keeping going on the trail at the same side for about 0.5 mile, there is a very nice lookout spot (not part of this trail though). Some people directly park down there to just view it. Then we walk back to across road and start going down the trail. It is so cool and peaceful. We have encountered 3 people in total (and several at the sightseeing spot). The going down part is long and steady, we thoroughly enjoy it. It is a really nice area. It is Monday but lots people are around this area for water recreations.

First time on this trail and loved it! Everyone commented about the steady incline and they’re correct but it’s not too daunting. Right after starting at the trailhead, you need to decide a direction; we went to the left. And definitely go to the Overlook - worth it! I will say we did not notice where the trail turned to cross the road, and so after the Overlook, we kept following the trail for about 3/4 mile and I’m glad we did as the trail went through really cool large rocks! We doubled back and picked up the trail, and as everyone mentioned there were definitely some muddy spots but nothing terrible! We ended up at almost 6 miles due to our detour!

Solid uphill climb for the first two miles. Very beautiful, mossy and rocky. Also very muddy in some places.

Solid trail. First half was a steady incline, and not too muddy. When you are about to cross the road, stop and go left to the lookout point (.2 miles tops to lookout & worth it) before proceeding across the road and downhill. Second half of the trail was where it got pretty muddy.

Decent trail. Going up Baughman was a nice steady incline. No problems. Encountered one gentleman on his way down. Went to the Overlook then down Sugarloaf. The alltrails route was closed, so I started up toward the Sugarloaf sledding area, but turned around and took the closed trail because I was unsure if the alternate trail would get me down thr ridge. Talk about ankle breakers!!!Lots of loose rocks. took longer to come down than up. Still, I will go back.

Hiked this trail the day after Thanksgiving. We didn’t see anyone else on our hike, but we were hiking later in the day. It is a well-marked and easy to follow trail. The initial 2 miles was all uphill, but doable and not too steep except for the first quarter mile or so. Some areas were slightly muddy, but all were easy to avoid. There were some branches down in the path probably due to some very high winds a few days before. It has some nice views, and you cross two country roads, but it’s mostly just quiet woods except when you’re near the river - hard to miss the rushing water sound. I would love to see it in the summer with all the foliage.

First time at Ohiopyle. This is a nice day hike and a great workout. I accessed Baughman from the passage. First 2 miles are straight up which is where you will get the great workout. You are in the deep woods the whole time and I was solo for most of it. It was a little muddy in spots but very manageable. Pay attention once you get to Sugarloaf road or you will miss the lookout (do not cross and stay straight at the junction to see it). All in all a great hike with a decent view (you are below tree line). I will be sure to get back there soon to check out some of the other trails

I enjoyed this one! Any trail with a decent elevation change and some pretty views makes me happy. This was a decent work out.

Best to start at the visitors center in Ohiopyle on the bike trail. At the end of the parking lot is a gate to keep vehicles off the bike trail. About 20 ft past the gate is Baughman trail (unmarked). 10ft up that trail is Sugarloaf Trail or the right (unmarked). That's how you'll return. Trail is very easy to follow & unremarkable up to the summit & Baughman overlook. which is amazing. Beautiful trail from there until you cross the road at the sledding area. There's a lot of ways to go from here, but none of them are marked "Baughman". The easiest way to do it without getting lost is to make a hard right & go to the end of the parking lot that's about half the size of a football field. At the end of that lot is Sugarloaf Road Trail. follow that to Sugarloaf trail. The trail markings will say Sugarloaf Trail (not Baughman) once you get to the sledding area. Very scenic trail back to where you started.
