My wife, who is from the Yoop, insisted we do this hike on our recent visit. I really didn't know what to expect, but it turned out to be an excellent way to start our day. The hike provides two different paths and neither of them are very difficult. As others have stated the views are awesome at the top... More

You absolutely have to visit sugarloaf if you are in the area! Things to know: no bathroom where you park nor drinking fountain. Be prepared! Wear lots of bug spray, this is the woods after all. The difficult trail wasn't to bad for us. I climbed it 16 weeks pregnant just fine while taking our time. As long as you... More

Put on your walking shoes and take a hike well worth the time. Its a very nice trail with some steps and alot of climbing as you can guess but places to stop and enjoy the view. Would be nice in the fall.

The hike up Sugarloaf Mountain was a great little workout for six of us, aged 15 - 40-something. Our 15 year old son led the way and set the pace up the difficult slope. We managed to huff and puff our way up the mountain in under 15 minutes -- by no means is it necessary to move this quickly!... More

Take your time, hike both paths, bring water and spend some time at the top taking in the stunning views. My daughter and I met some really nice people on the both hiking paths!

We hiked up the mountain late on a Saturday afternoon. The difficult path was quite easy. The view was amazing. A must when visiting Marquette.

Worth the hike for the view! There are different trails to approach the top based on a hiker's ability. I like the stairs-- a great climb and the trail is well made and safe. Kiss love this hike, as do all other ages. The view at top is of Lake Superior and the surrounding hills to the south, west and... More

I like Sugarloaf, but I live-in Alaska, so things are a lot different and I get great hikes and great views. When I visit home, (I'm from Marquette), I always try to come here anyway. I love that there is two different paths and I'm not in the best of shape, but still made it up the mountain. It's a... More

This was our second time hiking up ~ last fall was beautiful, but this past weekend with the clear sky and ice bergs floating in the water was awesome. If you're not in great shape, just go slow and take your time because once you're to the top, it will have been worth it.
