Sugarloaf Peak

Sugarloaf 11,051'
Devils Castle 10,961'

Albion Basin, Little Cottonwood Canyon


We parked one car at Albion Basin and another at Snowbird. We rode the tram up to the top of Hidden Peak, and then traversed Alpine Ridge up to Mount Baldy and then on up to the Sugarloaf. From there we hiked down to Cecret Lake in Albion Basin, and then back to our car.

It was cold on top, I didn't bring any extra clothes.
