    Decided to head out and do this one again (as its right near my home). The hike started off on well-formed tracks, winding through dry woodland as we climbed towards the summit. The final section on the familiar vehicle track was a breeze, and the views from the top towards Mount Blackwood were definitely worth the effort. The descent was interesting – a turn south and then a gradual down into the valley. Keep an eye out for the four-way junction – taking a right here led to a narrower track that wound back through the woodland. Overall, this was a great grade 3 hike – 3-4 hours well spent for anyone looking for a scenic loop with some off-track exploration!

    The usual hike to the summit of Sugarloaf follows vehicle management tracks, so this was a nice variation that follows unmarked trails to and from the summit. The views from the summit are excellent to the west but are becoming more and more obscured in other directions due to vegetation growth. This was a really nice (and peaceful) half day hike.
