Description

The Sugar Lake Trail was rebuilt in 2013 but is purposefully not maintained to discourage visitation to this unique ecosystem that contains one of the most diverse conifer forests in North America (known as Miracle Mile). The trail is a singletrack dirt path that follows Sugar Creek and is overgrown but is still easy to follow. The trail to South Sugar Lake splits off about halfway up the Sugar Lake Trail.

Flora & Fauna

One of the most diverse conifer forests in North America (known as Miracle Mile).
