thin snow made it more scenic. from station, up via sweeping track, down via straight line.dicky01/02/2015
Parking at access track for Sugar Loaf Halt. Over an expansive livestock rly bridge (flush bracket bagged). Turned left and took wide farm track for 600m then right onto a sheep track up onto the hill, thus avoiding the fern. Extensive grassy summit with 2 separate comms compounds; 2 horses also - these seem a permanent feature! Direct route down - shorter and more fun.jonglew07/09/2014

Park on grass above Sugar Loaf railway station, then over bridge, turned right to angle up this steepish slope with Phil Cooper. Lovely flattish summit with masts. Then headed east along top then back down steeping slope to track back to bridge. Then off to picnic site to park and climb to top of Sugar Loaf viewpoint a possible P30.Dugswell218/11/2012
Parked at Sugar Loaf Halt and took direct route to summit with Alan H and George M. Horse was still there! A handy cafe in layby on A483 opposite. We didn't have the Trippel Breakfast.chriswatson17/11/2012
Parked in an access area for forest walks. Along busy A483 to a path to a small bridge crossing the Shrewsbury to Llanelli railway. Pleasant walk uphill on a dry vehicle access track to the crest and then on green sheep pastures by a wire fence to the top with masts at 12.20.arranc08/08/2012
