Sugarloaf is a hike in Shenandoah National Park. It is a 10.1 mile hike with an elevation of 1600 feet. This is a moderate hike. The hike is located just south of Hogback Overlook and MP 21, just north of the AT that crosses the Drive. You will find a parking area at this location. GPS coordinates of Hogback Overlook are[masked] [masked] This is a figure-8 hike with the first loop descending the eastern slope then climbs Hogback Mountains Peak and follows the AT back to the starting point. This is around 5 miles where if you want to make this a shorter hike , you can leave. The second loop descends the east slope to cross Piney River then climbs back to the AT on Sugarloaf Trail. I found this hike in one of my circuit hikes guide that I've had around for awhile. Please let me know if you have any medical problems. Bring plenty of water. The conditions in the mountains may change at any time. Please be prepared. We will hike no faster than the slowest person. Shenandoah Trailblazers is not liable for any incident that may occur Jan Organizer
