Trail Race: Sugarloaf Uphill Climb

Michael and I signed up for the Sugarloaf Uphill Climb, a 2.2 mile race up Sugarloaf Mountain in Carrabassett Valley with roughly 2500′ of elevation gain. The average pitch was 20%, but at its steepest was 30%. The race was advertised as being 2.5 miles, so we were both surprised when we turned the last corner to find the finish line.


  • The race started from the quad lift
  • We ran up Binder Trail to summit
  • The finish was a few hundred feet below the true summit
