From Etna (Hwy. 3) go south on Hwy. 3 for about a couple of miles. Turn Right onto French Creek Road (3G). Follow French Creek road all the way to the top and turn Right at the T onto FS road 40N22. Go to the end and turn Right at the T onto FS road 41N14. The trailhead is on the Left about a mile down this road.
From Duck Lake trailhead, continue on same road about another mile, past 2 creeks (one bridge, one culvert). The trail head is a short ways up the road after the second creek, on the left side.
Follow the Duck Lake trailhead directions up to FS road 41N14. Then turn Left (right goes to Duck Lake) Take FS 41N14 for a couple of miles. There is no TH sign at this TH. Watch for a wide spot on the Left side of the road which was used as a log landing. This is the TH. There is another road going to the right here which you can use to turn rigs around. If you get to the bridge over the creek you have gone one bend too farů back up. (small rigs can turn around at bridge but easier to back with trailers.) The trail is a very short distance up the road and to the right. The trail has a sign on a tree. (Sugar Lake is at the very bottom of this map)
