Sugarloaf Mountain’s Caretakers – Stronghold Inc. – reopened the Mountain to the public on 10/10/23, but there are changes. Visitors will no longer be allowed to park in the crossroads or “square”. This change will keep the intersection clear of inappropriately parked vehicles, eliminate late night loitering, and stop after hours entry onto the Stronghold property. This change will also provide a needed staging area for all EMS vehicles during emergencies. They will be towing. Also, the front gate closes at 4 pm. If you are on the Stronghold property after sunset, you have overstayed your welcome. Please park only in designated spaces, no roadside parking is allowed. Vehicles parked on the property after sunset will be towed at the owner’s expense.
Also, directional traffic control spikes have been installed to prevent vehicles from traveling the wrong way up the mountain exit road. This change was made for the safety of our visitors and staff. Please pay special attention to all associated warning signs.
Remember, Sugarloaf Mountain is not a public park but rather private property owned and operated by Stronghold, a not-for-profit entity dedicated to the conservation and forestry mission of its founder, Gordon Strong.
