Details

Who knows how many Sugarloafs' there are in Colorado.  This one is west of Deckers completely in the Hayman burn area meaning no trees.  We start where the FS road into Wigwam TH of Lost Creek Wilderness crosses Wigwam Creek and follow an abandoned road to the base of the inverted cone of Sugarloaf Peak.  We ascend the peak by whatever looks like the best route and then descend the opposite side.  We cross the abandoned road again and ascend the backside of the unnamed 8685' partner of Sugarloaf, then descend the frontside of that peak to our starting point.  So this is a loop over two summits off trail except for the old road.   The trip is exploratory to the leader except that he has visited the starting point and was eyed by a big cow (bull?) with really big horns.  I hope it is not there on trip day.



See note,especially new members




Notes

Gas money for the driver is 110 miles X 30 cents/mile divided by 4 people in a car = $8.  Check your E-mail about two days before the trip for an "intro" message from the leader with specific details of the trip.
