This popular trail offers the whole family views close to Marquette.
At the large but sometimes overfilled parking area for Sugarloaf Mountain you're presented with two trail options: "Difficult" and "Easy Trail". This is the "Easy Trail" option. It begins flat and somewhat parallel to the road along a wide and smooth trail. Eventually you'll encounter wooden stairs and some wooden boardwalk sections that make would-be-rocky areas easy to cross. The trail flattens out again through a shady canyon between large rocks. A few benches allow you to rest along the way. You'll come to an intersection with the "Difficult" trail and a small spur. Head north up a sequence of wooden stairs to reach the summit. At the top there are three wooden platforms built for enjoying the excellent views and a monument to "Bart" the founder of Boy Scout Troop 1 and a casualty of WWI.
