Located on the north edge of Sedona, Sugarloaf Hill is a rounded 250-foot butte overlooking West Sedona. The bald, red rock mound is due south of Coffeepot Rock and east of Chimney Rock. From below, it does not appear that the views atop would be spectacular. From 4,912-foot summit, they are awesome, with close-up 360 degree vistas. It is an easy climb to the summit from the tapered north slope. Sugarloaf Hill is accessed from the Teacup Trail.

The hill is surrounded by buildings but once you get by the hustle and bustle of West Sedona the view of distant Steamboat Rock, Courthouse Butte, Cathedral Rock, Mingus and others are great. The hot air balloons added to the views. The close up to Coffeepot is wonderful.
Set in Sedona itself, a good starter to get a taste of trail finding in the area with no risk. The climb up is technically easy but just hard enough to get the blood moving. The view from the summit is surprisingly expansive.
