Want to do a thru-hike from Sugarloaf to Hood Mountain or vice versa? Ride the Sugar-Hood Shuttle!

How it works
Every half hour, our Shuttle will leave from either Sugarloaf Ridge State Park's Visitor Center (making a brief stop at the Goodspeed parking lot) or Hood Mountain Regional Park’s Pythian Rd parking lot (with a brief stop at the equestrian lot). Make a reservation to ride to the other end of the trail and begin your hike, or hike and ride back. We recommend riding first and hiking back to your car afterwards– no worries about how long you take to finish your adventure. The hike should take 3½ to 4½ hours; the distance is about 7.4 miles one way with approximately 2,300ft of elevation gain. Bring at least 64oz of water and sun protection, as the majority of the trail is exposed.

Registration is strongly encouraged, as there is only space for 5 riders at a time, but you can ride on a space-available basis as well. There is no charge for the ride, but the suggested donation of $10 helps keep us going. Dogs and bikes are not allowed in the shuttle or on Goodspeed Trail (the State Park portion of the hiking route). Parking fees apply.
