Sturgeon Falls Trail

Hiking the Sturgeon Falls Trail

Trail Distance:

1 Miles

Trail Description:

Sturgeon Falls Trail - As you leave the Bears Den Trail and return to FR 2200, turn left, go approximately 1/2 mile (300 feet) until you come to the junction with FR 2270. Turn left on FR 2270 and go approximately 1 1/2 mile until you see the sign for Sturgeon Falls Trail. The trail will be on your left but the parking area is on the right. Sturgeon Falls Trail is approximately 3/4 of a mile long on rather steep, sandy ground. The trail has two switchbacks to lessen the grade but is still a strenuous climb back out. The trail takes you on a nice hike through northern hardwoods to one of the tallest falls around.

Sturgeon Falls, Bears Den, and Pine Bluff Trails can also be accessed from the north via highway M38. You would turn south on Prickett Dam Road for approximately 2 1/2 miles until it junctions with FR 2270, turn right on FR 2270 and follow it for approximately 9 miles until you see the sign for Sturgeon Falls Trail. The trail will be on your right but the parking area is on the left. From here you reverse your drive back to Sidnaw and the Bears Den and Pine Bluff Trails.

Approximately 1/8 of a mile north of the parking area for the Sturgeon Falls Trail a spur trail to the North Country Trail leaves FR 2270. This spur is approx. 4/10 of a mile long. Once on the North Country Trail, an individual can go for miles!! The North Country Trail here is about medium difficulty but is a very nice walk through northern hardwoods. A special site to see is the overstory oak with an understory of white pine.
