Hogback Mountain reviews
The hike is about 45 minutes to an hour and it is well worth it. The view from the top is amazing!!! more »
The Hogback Trail is pretty easy to start, as you begin on an easy path. After a while, though, the path gets much tougher and there are times when you’re not sure if you’re still on it. Follow the... more »
Harder than sugarloaf, but more beautiful! Involves actual 4 point climbing at the top, but not super risky or hard. Bring two bottles of water!
Hands down this is the best hike I've been on in Marquette. The trail is a little bit tricky to find, I had the help of google maps and a self-proclaimed expert of the area, but it is well worth the search! The hike is definitely more difficult than Sugarloaf which should be taken into consideration if you're looking for all-ages-friendly hikes. The trail itself has gradual slopes winding its way to the base of the mountain and is fairly rocky, and has swampy sections where there are logs and rocks pushed into the mud to make passage a little easier, but be warned you're still going to get a little muddied up! The closer to the base of the mountain the steeper the trail will be and the last stretch is definitely more climbing than hiking as you break out of the tree line but it leads you to a stunning almost 360 view of Marquette and the surrounding area. I would highly recommend to anyone in the area, especially if they are looking for the best views, and a hearty hike that will not take up their entire day (took us about 2 hours at a gradual pace).
