- Sugar Bush Hill Historical Marker, Northern Highland
Near Crandon, at the intersection of Highway 8 and Kwe Da Kik Lane. Marker is at a wayside.
Live the highlife in Northern Wisconsin and visit this historical marker showcasing the highest point in the Northern Highland region of Wisconsin.
Sugarbush Hill, which you see across the valley, is one of the highest points in the northern highland geological province. This province, which includes some 15,000 square miles, is underlain by the crystalline rock on an ancient mountain range comparable to the Rockies, the peaks of which were ground down by glacial and other geological processes extending over almost infinite time. Within this forest region lies one of the greatest concentration of lakes in the world, similar to that of Finland. ~ Excerpts from Wisconsin Historical Society
