Sugarloaf Mountain is a monadnock — an isolated hill or small mountain rising a above the level surrounding land.
Sugarloaf is actually run by a non-for-profit organization, Stronghold, and has a surprisingly high number of crisscrossing trails — allowing you to mix trails to extend or shrink hikes.
The mountain is part of the deep history of the area. It was named by pioneers who thought it is resembled the sugar loaves popular in that time. It was sketched for the first time by a Swiss explorer in 1707. Troops under British General Braddock marched past the mountain during the French and Indian War in 1755. Northern and Southern forces treated wounded soldiers in the log cabin still standing on the property.
There are a couple wonderful vistas and it is worth a visit. You can pick less or more challenging trails. Bring a good map because the trail markers can be a bit confusing.
