Sugarloaf Cove is an incredible place to explore geology! Step back in geologic time and learn about the formation of the Sawtooth Mountains and Lake Superior. Learn to recognize common rocks found in the area and the story of their formation. What does a Lake Superior agate look like? What about Thompsonite? Did you know lava flows have layers- and Sugarloaf Cove is one of the best places to see them all in one place. It’s all here under your feet – come explore with us!
