I loved this hike. You get awesome views of Devils Castle and Sugarloaf from the very beginning. From Cecret Lake I went up between Devils Castle and Sugarloaf. I explored Devils Castle for a bit then walked the ridge up to Sugarloaf. It looked like it was going to be way far but it was really easy to the top. I went down the other side since that is supposed to be the "easy" way. I guess I went the wrong way because I never picked up a trail going down and the loose rocks really sucked. I climbed down a little cliffy area which was really fun and made my way back to the lake. The way I went wouldn't really be suitable for young kids but my 10 year old would have done it just fine. Also, I did this in the evening and it was awesome. The lighting on the rocks was really pretty.
