Sugarloaf Mountain

Sugarloaf Mountain is one of the most recognizable peaks around Valdez. The 3,480 foot high mountain is located next to Solomon Lake "across the bay" from town. A saying among Valdez locals is that "snow on Sugarloaf" means that "winter is only six weeks away".

How To Get There

Sugarloaf can be seen easily from town on a clear or even partly cloudy day, though for a closer view, you can hike the John Hunter Memorial Trail up to Solomon Lake.
