Sugarloaf Mountain Is A Gorgeous Forest Trail In Michigan That Will Take You To A Hidden Overlook

One of Michigan’s best overlooks is just a short drive from the city of Marquette in the Upper Peninsula. Only six miles away from Marquette’s craft breweries, trendy restaurants, and museums is Sugarloaf Mountain, a 470-foot granite peak right off the shores of Lake Superior. A short, well-maintained hike is all that stands between the parking lot and one of the most picturesque spots in the Great Lakes.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

From the parking lot to the outlook and back is a total of approximately 1 mile. Look for the Sugarloaf Mountain sign off of CR 550 for the parking lot. You can learn more about the trail and what else to do in the area here.
