Hogback Mountain

Hogback Mountain


Hogback Mountain is a small rocky peak amongst the Huron Mountains north of Marquette. It was one of my favorite dayhikes during my years in nearby Negaunee. The trail begins off County Road 550 just north of the Sugarloaf Mountain parking area. The 3-mile roundtrip passes some of the area’s finest scenery. Come on along...
