This 5.5-mile moderately strenuous hike in Shenandoah’s northern district begins next to Skyline Drive and follows the Appalachian Trail for a brief stretch before turning off onto the Sugarloaf Trail. Along the way, you’ll pass a wide variety of flora, fauna and geographical features. At mile 3.3, you’ll reach a moderately challenging 1 mile, 500-foot ascent of Hogback Mountain. Expansive views of Shenandoah await at the top.
Our Hundred Mile Club will be hiking Sugarloaf Trail on Wednesday, August 22. Our guide, Howard Thompson, is co-owner of Appalachian Outdoors Adventures in Luray, VA. We’ll meet at the parking area, milepost 21 on the west side of Skyline Drive, at 10am. RSVP is required by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (434) 293-2728.
