Sugarloaf National Recreation Trail is a difficult 10-mile trek to the highest point in Big Bear Valley. The first 2 miles of the trail is a dirt road, at times following Green Creek. Although the view from the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain is mostly obscured by trees you have climbed to an altitude of 9,952 feet.

From the south end of Stanfield Cutoff on Big Bear Boulevard (Highway 38), continue for 6 miles heading south toward Redlands. Turn right on 2N93 at the intersection of Highway 38 and Hatchery Road. Follow this dirt road until you reach the Sugarloaf Trail sign and park in the turnout. The first 2 miles follows an old, gated closed dirt road, which at times follows Green Creek.
