Hogback Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hogback Mountain is a local favorite. Especially for people new to the area, arriving at the top comes with a sense of accomplishment for having conquered Marquette’s highest point. From Hogback’s rocky promontory the northern forest seems endless in three directions.

Only to the east do the trees give way to the deep blues of Lake Superior stretching off to the horizon. Although you can’t always expect solitude here, the trip is still worth it. On one recent visit, a young musician was masterfully playing bagpipes while staring off into the distance."
