Prichard Lake

Prichard Lake [and other Lakes]

Prichard Lake is one of the jewels of Sugarloaf Park and a destination of choice for Park visitors

ACCESS TRAILS: Les Montagnards # 2 & 3 [biking, hiking, cross country skiing] and #5 [snowshoeing and hiking] will all bring you to the lake. PICNIC: Two picnic areas are close to the lake, one located at the Western end of the lake close to the cemetery and another on a platform over the lake at the Eastern end.

TO GO AROUND THE LAKE, two possibilities. Trail #6: Single 3 km track and narrow circling the lake very close to the water’s edge. Trail #3: Wide trail, ± 3,2 km climbing to the uplands on each side and back down to each end of the lake.


THE HISTORY OF THE PRICHARD FAMILY: The gravestones, close to the Western picnic area of the lake, remind us there once lived a family – the Prichard family – near this crystal clear body of water. The Prichard family lived at the lake from 1880 to 1960.  Read the wonderful life stories of the Prichard family at Prichard Lake.
