A three mile extension on to the Sugar Camp Hollow and Wetlands Reserve trail

John Ross

Description

Landowner permission required.
This is a three mile extension of the Sugar Camp Hollow trail.

Instead of turning left after the first stream crossing in Sugar Camp Hollow, continue straight to another stream crossing and follow the trail up the hill. It ascends out of the hollow on a narrow road with lots of water bars and joins one of the main logging roads on a ridge.

At the top of the hill the trail meets a three way intersection on a logging road. Turn left at the intersection. Water bars and washouts on the logging road make interesting technical objects and include some steep climbs and descents. Continue to a four way intersection and turn left.

After descending back into the upper end of Sugar Camp Hollow take a sharp left into the woods before getting to a culvert at the bottom of the hill. This is a challenging singletrack through mature pine trees that leads back to the top of the waterfall. Here you may take the Sugar Camp Hollow trail back to the creek or walk up the steep hill to the right above the falls to a trail through pine plantation back to the logging road.

A left turn on the logging road leads to the Wetlands Reserve Trail for return to the bridge and cabin or for a shorter route continue on the logging road to return to the bridge instead of taking the Wetlands Reserve trail.
