Sugar Loaf Mountain Walk

Sugar Loaf Mountain Walk

I am ashamed to say that in all the years that Iain and I have lived in this area this is the first time we have ventured up the Sugar Loaf – so named as it looks like an old fashioned sugar loaf especially when it has been snowing.  I suppose when you live near something and see it on a day-to-day basis one tends to take things for granted.  On this occasion we had planned a quite different walk but circumstances encouraged us to re-think our day.



Not content with our last walk and seeing as we were having unseasonably good weather – if anyone told me that I would be walking in the Black Mountains in the middle of October in lightweight walking trousers and a sleeveless T-shirt I would have laughed at them! – Here we were up in the glorious countryside again, soaking up the sun! This walk proved to be harder than the first partly because we got our preparations wrong; we both underestimated the temperature and did not equip ourselves correctly.  Hence my tip in the last article to make sure you take plenty of water.
