Britton Peak Trail


A view of Lake Superior and Carlton Peak from Britton Peak

This trail is possibly the shortest trail to a Sawtooth Mountain overlook on the Forest.  It is a quick, though steep, quarter mile hike with a nice scenic view from the top. 

This is also the starting point for the Britton Peak singletrack mountain biking trailsin the summer, and the Sugarbush crosscountry ski trail system in the winter.

Be aware when either biking or hiking that the mountain bike trails may be used by both bikers and hikers.  Hikers should step off the trail and yield to bikers when they meet.  Click here for a map of the mountain bike trail system.
