Sullivan Lake Road
Part of Seattle City Light’s Mill Pond Project: the dam has been removed, the floodplain habitat is being restored, and the system now features a complete loop around the basin including footbridges across Sullivan Creek, and an interpretive loop in the floodplain itself. (See new Mill Pond Area trail map.)
In 2019–2020, PNTA trail crews helped complete the Sullivan Creek loop, including the construction of a puncheon bridge and several turnpikes built as work-based learning projects with students from the Curlew Job Corps. Part of the Mill Pond system could become an integral piece of the puzzle that connects the PNT from Sullivan Lake to the town of Metaline Falls.
