“An All-Time Favorite Hike”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Maybe I'm biased, having grown up in the area, but I have since left, hiked many trails, visited lots of National Parks, and Sugarloaf Mountain remains one of my favorite short hikes, especially if you can hike it in the Fall. It's a bit of an uphill climb to get to the top, but once there, the views are worth it - beautiful wooded vistas leading up to Lake Superior's edge. We do this trail every time we return to the area.

“Great View - Do Not Miss”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Great overlook of Marquette and Lake Superior about five miles north of town. Climb several sets of stairs, not a strenuous feat, or follow a series of ramps to the top. Pick a clear day and you will be able to see for miles.

“Great hike!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

We enjoyed the trip through the woods and up sugarloaf. Amazing view and easy to follow trails. Some level of endurance is required but not too bad at all. My 73 year old father enjoyed it!

Make sure and hike Sugarloaf if you visit Marquette. This hike is one of the prettiest hikes I've ever been on. Take the time to see it.

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

An excellent view of Lake Superior, but can be a challenge for some. A few hills, rocky rugged trail till you reach the stairway.Trail can be muddy and slippery at times, but well worth the hike, wildflowers..Always a nice breeze on top! Beautiful!!!!
