The Sugarloaf Heritage Council in partnership with ASU-Heber Springs has completed three trails for hiking. Whether you choose a sunrise, a sunset, or a sunny day, the view is sure to please you at the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. It’s well worth the climb.


  • The Summit Trail is .66 miles round trip and leads you to the base of the summit. This trail is the most difficult to negotiate because it is steep and slippery. There are rest areas along the way.
  • The Tonawanda Base Trail meanders 1.3 miles around the base of the mountain. It is of moderate difficulty and occasional uneven footing. Benches have been installed along the way.
  • The Hidden Pond Trail being relatively flat and paved is an easy. 25 miles, with good footing. There is also a 90 foot wooden bridge with seating along the way and picnic table near the pond. This trail in handicap accessible.

Whats Next…
Sugarloaf Heritage Council is moving forward with the master plan to build a 1 mile wildlife and hiking trail in the bottom area west of Sugarloaf Mountain. This trail will join the proposed 11 mile Sulphur Creek Hiking Trail heading west into Heber Springs. Sulphur Creek Trail is a project of Greers Ferry Lake Trails Council and the City of Heber Springs.
