Gold Mines, History & a 16-Mile Trail
Many of the initial settlers of Sugar Hill were gold miners and many of these miners mined from Sugar Hill all the way to the Chattahoochee River. As a celebration of this heritage, the City of Sugar Hill is redeveloped 440 Level Creek Road for use as a 9.2-acre park named “Gold Mine Park,” which sits along Level Creek Road and serves as a trail head to the Sugar Hill Greenway. The 16-mile trail circles around the city and hikers can enjoy a beautiful part of Sugar Hill’s unique history. Hussey Gay Bell provided architectural and engineering expertise to assist in these efforts and other support services identified by the City.
