The views from Sugarloaf are nothing short of spectacular. The trails up (there are two--one with stairs, one pretty much without) are quite pleasant. Right on the highway (550).

Short hike, a little steep, lots of steps but worth the view. Absolutely beautiful. You can take your doggie on this trail as well.

It's a good work out to get to the top, but worth every calorie burned. From the top you can see the Dome, white rocks and preque isle harbor. We had the pleasure of seeing two rainbows out over lake superior as rain passed us...More

Pick a clear day to do this hike to maximize your experience. It's super popular on the weekends, and while we didn't do this, it would probably be an excellent one to do early in the morning before breakfast. It's easier to go up the...More

A good place to hike that is right off the road. No special equipment needed. Well maintained and easy to access. The views on the day I went was foggy, but you could hear the waves crashing below and regardless, the views were great though...More

After conferring with my wife it was probably a 30 minute climb. We did stop a couple times on the way up for sake of the view and to catch our breath. The closer we got to the top we did slow a bit - our 14 year old, 4... More

Depends on the kind of pet doesn't it? If it's a dog, just keep it on a leash and all is well.

Amanda, I did not pay anything, and I looked for a way to pay. I think this is a free park open to the public. Enjoy!
