Do you know what a “sapsucker” is? If not, we suggest making a trip to the Laurel Fork Sapsuckers sugar camp to ask the Sapsuckers crew yourself! Laurel Fork Sapsuckers has the highest elevation of any sugar camp within Highland County and is located 10 miles west of Monterey off of Rt. 250 west, left onto Clay Hise Lane. They are a small, family-run sugar camp that is always welcoming hands-on participation. (By the way, the family, including family patriarch Ronnie Moyers, holds a goal to give hand-shakes to every visitor!) While you’re there, enjoy seeing the traditional, wood-fired way maple syrup has been made for centuries as they use one-hundred-year-old, locally-made open pans in their production process. Enjoy the ¾ mile loop trail through the sugar bush with various outdoor kids activities available. Call ahead to schedule a visit. (540) 468-2289 ~ ~ Call Ahead to Schedule Your Visit!
