Sugarloaf is a really nice hike with fantastic views at the top. There is an "easy" and "difficult" route, which is nice to be able to choose. Make sure to take your camera! It's fun to have lunch on the top too.

Title says it all. Not to far out of town and great as a short excursion. I love hiking around the backside , instead of taking the long way around.

Sugarloaf is the perfect way to kill a few hours. Absolutely beautiful hike, and the views you're rewarded with at the top make all those stairs more than worth it! Pretty neat at night too, if you don't mind the dark. Even if you're not in shape (like me) there are pleanty of benches along the way for you to... More

A 15 minute hike that is worth every breath it takes you to get there! I recommend early morning sunrises over Lake Superior.

The day me and my boyfriend went the weather was absolutely perfect. The hike seemed like it was going to be long and hard and it actually was not bad of a hike up. They have stairs to go up for half the way which makes it pretty easy. Once you get up there, you see all of Lake Superior... More

Must-do if you are visiting Marquette, Michigan! The difficult trail only took about 25 minutes to get to the top, and make sure to wear sneakers, because the trail consists of some stairs, but mainly the natural environment. We planned our hike with the sunset, and the view was spectacular.

Sugarloaf was really a great place to visit. I don't think you'll find a better view of Lake Superior anywhere else in the area. Maybe Presque Isle.

Free and located just a few minutes northeast of Marquette. Newly paved parking lot leads you to 2 trails - one easier but longer than the other with stairs. Both lead to the rock covered summit with several platforms with vista to the lake, Presque Isle, and the wooded areas around Marquette. Great for adults and kids.

The trail along the hike is well maintained as is the overlook platform at the top. Hiking Sugarloaf is a great family adventure, especially in the fall.
