A rugged, demanding run connecting the eastern trails and the northern trails around Sugarloaf Peak

Karl Ingersoll

Overview

Features: Views

Description

Heading west from Champagne, Picnic Table is a rough, narrow, demanding run that connects to the trails that take you through and around Sugarloaf Peak. The climbs are short but steep and very eroded. Run with your eyes wide open, and watch for the occasional cactus in the middle of the trail and ocotillo hanging across the trail at face-height. Between the demanding climbs, the trail is classic old-school singletrack, 8 inches wide, and about as close to simply running across the wilderness as it gets.

The views are sweeping, with the Imperial Dunes backed by the mountain range behind. Sugarloaf takes on an entirely different character as you approach the peak. From the distance, it seems quite diminutive, but up close and personal it is much more impressive to behold.
