  • Beautiful! Take the harder trail - it was not very hard, the kids loved it. They did it by themselves. The easier trail has a lot of stairs.  more »

  • I hiked this in -20° temperatures and it was still worth it. Not anyone else in sight. Mind you, the "Difficult" route is what you want to take if there's a lot of snow. The steps were covered in snow and made it much harder to climb (the "easy" route has more steps). Bonus: when you reach the top, slide down the steps on your bum and it's fast, painless, and fun, if there's good snow. Happy hiking!
  • Visited here in Mid July, 2017. Sugarloaf Mountain trail is a terrific hike if you happen to find yourself in Marquette, MI. The hike itself is fairly short and relatively easy. It is a vertical hike, but not too strenuous for most people. The views at the top are well worth it. You'll get terrific views in all directions. We spent a fair amount of time at the top just soaking in the awesome views. I'd plan 1 to 1.5 hours once you arrive. There are two routes, an "easy" and "Difficult". We didn't do the "easy", but the difficult really wasn't all that difficult, just a trail with many tree roots to work your way over. Strongly suggested!
  • Easy hike that leads to amazing views. There's low traffic which makes it very peaceful and can take great pictures. If you can, I would recommend going up the difficult path, then back down via the easy path.
  • What a great place to go for a hike through the woods and up a mountain. You can choose the trail, easy or difficult. Warning, there are a lot of stairs to climb from the halfway point to the top...but the views from the top are priceless!
  • Been up here a number of times. I always take the path on the left...not sure if that is easy or difficult path. This is one of my favorite places to go in the Marquette, MI area. Take it slow and watch your steps so you don't twist your ankle especially if you take the path on the left. :)
