Known locally as "The Mountain", Sugarloaf is an unusual geological phenomenon towering 100 feet above the surrounding terrain. Composed of sand, it was at one time capped with ferrous sandstone, much of which has now weathered away. Vegetation on the mountain includes mountain laurel and the diminutive pixie moss, both quite unusual for this area. Quiet, shady seclusion, rustic stone and timber picnic shelters, a fishing lake and nature trail combine with this unique geological formation to make Sugarloaf one of the most popular recreation areas in the sand hills region. Also, bird watching, nature study, primitive camping, and horseback riding. Permit (purchased at Sand Hills State Forest Headquarters) required for all activities except hiking.
