Sweetness Trail


Advertising Main


The southern end of the trail (near Frying Pan Lake) travels parallel to the Its Gotta Go Trail just inside of the ridge. Combining the two trails makes a great long, narrow loop. This section of the trail travels through a young shrub section. On my hike I found several deer laying in the tall grasses amongst the bushes.

Ridge on the Sweetness Trail

At about the middle of the trail, near the junction with the Its Gotta Go Trail, the trail turns sharply to the right. The trail travels back away from the ridge, and climbs into a mostly spruce forest. Eventually the trail comes out on the Mayflower Lake Trail.
