“Awesome view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

Tough to get to the top in the winter but it was well worth the effort. Took about 20+ minutes to reach the summit. Use "Yaktraks" or crampons and poles to make it easier. And don't forget your camera!

“Gorgeous little hike for the whole family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

This is to place to be in Marquette no matter who you are. It is a short hike to the top and almost anyone can get to the top. The end has a few stairs but it's worth it for the beautiful view of Lake Superior and the surrounding area.

“Beautiful Vista”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

This is a fairly strenuous climb but worth it. Be sure to take water and your camera. Toward the top there is a "fork in the road", with stairs going toward the right or left. Take the one on the right that leads to the summit and panoramic views. Perfect for the iphone panoramic camera setting!

Worth the climb every time we go there. There was nothing to dislike about Sugarloaf.Even with snow on the trail it was good.

“Excellent place to see the fall colors!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

From what looked like a few small hiking trails on a state highway about 10 miles N of downtown turned into a beautiful 20 minute hike to a gorgeous view of the northern UP forests, colors and Lake Superior shoreline include fantastic views of the Marquette region.

We decided to make the climb on this bike trip after talking about it as one of the things we wanted to do on our short visit this past October. It was well worth it. The climb is a little tiresome but is well laid out with wooden steps in all the places needed to help make this trip easy on most people.
