Spectacular view

Panoramic view of beautiful Marquette, Michigan, and the surrounding area. Climbing the Mountain can be done year-round, and if you have as little as an hour of time to spare.

Sugarloaf Mountain is less than 10 minutes north of Marquette, right along the Lake Superior shoreline. It's a very easy hike (there's an "easy" route and a "difficult" route, but both are entirely manageable), and the views at the top is amazing. There is a great panorama of the City of Marquette, Lake Superior, and the interior of Marquette County.... More

I used to always drive by this mountain on the side of the road, thinking it wasnt worth my time. One time - I stopped - now I do it every year. The hike isnt very long, and the views at the top are breathtaking. Please stop and do this hike! you wont regret it

If you don't mind the CLIMB -( there are stairs) the view from the top is totally amazing! Makes you appreciate just how BIG Lake Superior is!

I think people have been climbing up here for a hundred+ years. Great view of Marquette, the lake shore and the surrounding area. Not a difficult climb, good trails and stairs on the steeps, <30 minutes.

This is a family favorite. There are 2 trails to the top, Recommend that you take one on the way up and the other on the way down. We head out here a few times a summer

Popular location to visit or just hike up and have lunch. I bring my child throughout the summer and occasionally in the winter. Very pretty views.

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.
