Beautiful scenery and well groomed for the most part. The parking lot is decent but small. There is no bathroom at the trail head for Sugarloaf, but there is a Texaco a couple miles down the road before arriving to the trailhead. **Beware!!** There are SO many trails and it would be much better to be prepared with a map in hand of all numbered routes. Have your trail set before starting due to the number of pathways around the mountain. We started at Sugarloaf and moved on to Mt. Erie. I was bummed to find out that at the top of Mt. Erie, there is a parking lot. It lost its initial appeal since people at the top didn't all make the effort to get to the top. The sight to see if gorgeous though and worth it whether hiking or driving to it.

Loved this hike and is one of my favorites! Make sure to know what trail you are heading out on and would suggest to download a map.
I started on the Sugarload trail head and kept on 215 and then 228. It is muddy and slippery in some spots, to be careful - I slipped and fell on my way coming down!
The view point is gorgeous - pack a picnic to enjoy and stay awhile!

Beautiful trail, but it's STEEP right at the get go (I went 215 to 225). But it's gorgeous.

I went mid-April and it was VERY mudddy and slippery. Take note!
