This moderate to rugged 2-mile trail passes the old Coal Mine and follows Sugar Creek upstream to the Narrows Covered Bridge, then up to the Lusk Home. It returns along a stream and joins Trail 3 at the Punch Bowl. Trail 3 then goes through Rocky Hollow back to the Suspension Bridge.

Punch Bowl

The Punch Bowl is an example of a pothole that was scoured out by glacial erratics caught in swirling backwash. (Glacial erratics are pieces of bedrock from Canada carried here by the glaciers.)
