An approximate 10½ km (6½ mile) hike from the East View Parking Area along the White Trail to meet the Blue Trail (aka, Northern Peaks Trail) on the east side of the mountain to the West View Parking Area on the west side. Then up the Red Trail to the summit, returning to East View via the recently relocated Orange Trail back to East View Parking. Meet 9:30 am at the East View Parking Area.
This event was rescheduled from the original date of Dec. 9 to take advantage of a warming trend next week.
Those hiking trails that we enjoy using at Sugarloaf Mountain do not maintain themselves! This will be a joint event with the PATC South Mountaineers Trail Crew. A late season trail day was added to the fall 2018 schedule to perform trail repair that should not be deferred to next spring.
Meet at the West View parking area at 9:30 am. I will have a green PATC volunteer sign posted next to my car and at the trailhead to show the precise meeting location.
Some tread repairs will be needed where a large tree had recently fallen (last month) and took part of the trail with it. Also, installation of new and repair of existing erosion control structures are also planned.
Dress in clothing that you don't mind getting dirty appropriate for the weather. Bring work gloves, eye protection, water, lunch or trail snacks.
We will finish by 2:30 pm. Later arrivals welcome, the project location will be between half-mile markers B-8 & B-9, closer to B-9; refer to the Sugarloaf trail map.

Enjoy a long weekend at this gem of resort that receives 180” of snow on average. At 290 skiable acres, there is something for everyone from glades, to wider cruisers to awesome cross country trails. Although the vertical is not that steep, this mountain really has some interesting features like wooded paths that connect the front and back side of the mountain. Located in the charming town of Ellicottville, NY, there is as much fun off the slopes as on. Funky shops, wine tastings, craft beers, live music and dancing can all be found .5 miles from the resort. In addition, there are 5 restaurants/bars within walking distance of our condos.
