Sugarloaf Cove SNA is worth the visit. Be sure to stop in the nature center and enjoy the trails that lead down to a beach with unique geological features.

I love this place! A sweet loop through the trees, a pebble beach which is a great place to enjoy the lake and stack rocks, and Sugarloaf itself which has beautiful trees and views. Don't miss this place!

Sugarloaf Cove is not as well-known as the state parks that dot the North Shore, but is a beautiful place to experience the big lake.

Tucked into a natural cove, this area is interesting both for its natural beauty and also for its history in the region. Why stop here when there are so many places along the North Shore? It is a break from the harsh winds of Superior...More

We have stopped here twice while traveling up the North Shore, it's perfect for a short easy hike to the lake to stretch your legs after a long day of driving or taking the family out for a picnic on Lake Superior. Huge pebble/rock beach...More

Due to my leg problems, we just took the trail to the beach and that was good enough for us! It was a beautiful place to go. There were a few steps, but it wasn't bad. There are also 2 trails that take a longer,...More
