“A tough climb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

It is a nice hike up the hill for a great view. Remember it is against the law to climb the actual rock There are no picnic areas or official trails to get there

“Large and fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

We love to go shopping for antiques and found a couple wonderful, good buys here. One item, was so large, we thought it might not fit in our vehicle, but the folks helped us carry it out, not even knowing for sure we'd buy it. It fit, and we bought it! A nice place to spend a couple hours!

“Interesting Local Landmark”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

I've never been up to Sugar Loaf, but used to have an apartment right across from it during my WSU years. It's the most prominent local landmark in Winona, and it's fun to look at in the evening when it is illuminated. If you can find your way up there, I've heard it is climbable, but I've never tried (I'm clumsy and every so often someone falls off, with predicatable bad results).

You can see this from mile away...it's what is left after they had mined the top of this hill.

“see winona a new way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

Sugar loaf is a beautiful area. Again, free. Don't have money? This is good exercise without hitting the pocket book.
