Hiking ninjas know that short hikes can pack a mighty punch. Join us for one of our favorite local hikes at Sugarloaf Mountain and you won't be disappointed.

Sugarloaf Mountain is located in the middle of Montgomery County with some beautiful overlooks of the surrounding area. We will be hiking 8-9 miles with plenty of ascents and descents to keep in strong hiking ninja shape!

Hiking ninjas also know when they should stop and taste the grapes. We will be heading down the road to Sugarloaf Winery following the hike to try some local wine. Bring your favorite picnic foods and join us for some post hike relaxation.

Good hiking shoes/boots
Money for winery
