Sugar Loaf

East side of island a short distance inland from the shoreline,on Sugar Loaf Road at Point Lookout.The dramatic breccia mass rises 75 feet above the ground and is the largest of Mackinac Island’s many limestone stacks.  Centuries ago a huge lake that geologist call Lake Algonquin covered all but the center of Mackinac Island.  Sugar Loaf was then a small, eroding island cut off from the surrounding land area.  When the water receded, the stack was left standing as a tower of rock.
