Republic/Champion Grade Trail

Yet to Ride

March, 2024 by frmerry

Full disclosure, I haven't ridden this yet but plan to this summer. The reason for my review is that from Google Street and satellite view it appears there is a nice new paved path (so you can avoid riding on US 41) from Van Riper SP to Champion. This new trail (which just for fun I think they should name the Van Riper State Park/Greater Metropolitan Champion Intergalactic Intermodal Corridor because when typed out is nearly longer than the new trail itself) ends at Daliba Street which you can then take to where the R/CG trail begins behind the what now appears to be abandoned Mini-mart. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and 4 stars and update post ride. There also appears to be trailhead parking on the north of US 41 just to the west of the Van Riper SP entrance although for bathrooms and water you would have to go to the state park. Happy Trails.

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Excellent Trail

September, 2023 by drprovanch

We camped in Tourist Park and biked to the trail from one of the city trails. The first day, we biked up to Presque Isle Park on the city trail before heading south along the lake to the actual trail. You’re biking along Lake Superior on both the city and Iron Ore trails. The Iron Ore continues along the lake for quite a few miles before going into wooded area. We turned back when reaching Harvey. The next day we biked downtown on the city trails, then headed west on the Iron Ore Trail, a gradual incline trail. I eventually used my e-assist when the pavement changed to a crushed stone, not knowing how much longer I would be climbing. It wasn’t much further, becoming a less strenuous ride. We stopped in Negaunee at the Upper Peninsula Brewery for some refreshments. The return trip was all downhill, allowing lots of coasting. Our second stop was at Barrel & Beam, before coasting back to town where more breweries await!

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Beautiful Trail

July, 2023 by bkn94

I've Ridden this trail in Sections Several Times during my Visits to Marquette. If You want to ride along the water, which is gorgeous, you can start on the IOHT south of town. There is a Parking lot off the to the left side of the main Hwy. You can then ride all the way up to Presque Isle Park and Back. I Highly Recommend This Route!.
The second Route Starts at the same place then stay on the IOHT when it splits off to the left once you get to town. To be Honest, I lost the Trail due to construction but picked it up again by the Stay Bridge Suites Hotel. It goes straight west out of town. As Mentioned by others, you experience and incline gradient at least until you get to the train trestle. Stop there for a moment because it's pretty neat. A lot of old Iron Ore Pellets are all over the ground. There are a number of Historical Markers and Art Works along the way after that. I highly recommend this and the other trails in the Marquette area. Thanks BN


Peshekee to Clowry Rail-Trail

mainly orv trail

Mainly orv/snowmobile path. Along rivers and power lines. Be cautious of wolves in the area. Multiple small bridges over river crossings.

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Awesome Trail

June, 2022 by 9v4fmdgmpx

Awesome trail. Both paved and good gravel sections. We are five relatively fit men and women ages 64, 65, 66, 67, and 70. Our 70 year old rode a fat tire e-bike, but the rest of us had regular road bikes. We parked in Harvey and rode the trail to Negaunee and back, a 30-mile round trip. The constant uphill climb from Marquette into a breeze from the west was a challenge but the scenery is wonderful! We rested and ate lunch at a sweet café in Negaunee, the Midtown Bakery and Café, and then headed back. Since our return was pretty much all downhill, we finished 30 minutes faster than the first half of the ride. I really recommend this trail.

Haywire Grade Trail

This trail is mostly covered in deep sand at the Intake Park entrance. It is a constant struggle to plow through the drifts. We nearly toppled several times in the first mile and gave up.Only good for atv's and snowmobiles.

Coalwood Trail

Sandy and not really meant for bikes

November, 2021 by omahadivision

Tried this east of Coalwood but gave up after a mile so don't know if the rest is better. Deep sand and deep ruts from all terrain vehicles. Signs implied it was only open to off road vehicles although did not explicitly ban pedal bikes. I was riding a mountain bike with 2.3" tires but still kept sinking into the sand. Would not recommend.

Tyoga Historical Pathway

rustic & buggy but well marked

August, 2020 by dwehrmeyer

The trail is very rustic and hardly groomed but well marked with blue spray paint. If you are hoping to see ruins if historical significance then you will be disappointed. There are signs with pictures describing what is believed was once there. It’s very buggy so spray down completely before you go. It’s also muddy so you will want hiking boots. Anything of real concern, though, has wooden planks. It has tons of roots so watch your step. I have no idea how anyone skis that path.

Haywire Grade Trail

ok ride

August, 2020 by bonnie.smith_tl

Well any bike ride ride in up is a good one this one wouldn’t be top of my list. I would imagine it’s beautiful in the fall as it’s a straight level ride in the woods. Trail is gravel and varies in size of gravel. Can get stretches with very large chunks in it. Shame to see trash Dumped on it as well.

Bruno's Run Trail

Fun trail!

Marquette Multi-Use Path

i would give it 10 stars!

August, 2019 by sensi3d

Camped at "Tourist campground" (fantastic) biked 1 mile to trail. The trail has every thing you could want. Real (clean) bathrooms with water founts every few miles. Lots of views and picture taking spots. Many families with tiny bikes doing the trail. Presque isle closes for 2 hrs each day so bikers can use the road safely. Hrs. vary with the days of the week. Challenging hill on east side of the isle. good condition asphalt trail. little shoulder riding (6' wide)for 200' right near isle entrance.
