Sugarloaf Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.221m (10,567ft) above the sea level, located in Salt Lake County, in the U.S. state of Utah. It’s one of the highest roads of Utah.
Located within the Wasatch Mountain Range, the road to the summit is rocky and gravel. It’s a chairlift access trail. This trail can be done only a very narrow time-frame in the summer (end of August). The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. Even in summer you can confront with snowy days. Temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold. The road to the summit is a ski-station service road pretty steep, with some sections up to 30%. The summit overlooks Albion Basin, Secret Lake, and much of Utah's Alta ski resort.
