Description

This is an easy, somewhat shaded trail that follows Sugarloaf Creek upstream. It begins at the Roaring River Ranger Station and briefly follows the Roaring River before climbing over a rise to meet up with Sugarloaf Creek and bypassing the confluence of the two streams.

Around 7.0 miles and after a short steep climb, there is a nice campsite with bear-proof metal storage cabinets.

The trail ends at a four-way trail junction that has slightly confusing signage.

Getting forecast...

Great easy meandering trail, we were unable to get across sugarloaf Creek because the water was a little too high. There's not a lot of campsites, so we made our own. Beware of Ferguson creek it's usually higher than sugarloaf and will be a harder water crossing. Roaring river at the end of sugar has a bridge. The only true camping is the meadow with the bear box 2 miles before the crossing. Lot's of mosquitos! Used as a stock camp as well. Jun 20, 2016
