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.

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.

Great trail with fantastic views of several lakes.

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Uphill climb

July, 2019 by chipper53

I rode the Iron Ore trail from downtown Marquette west on a rented hybrid bike. I was unprepared for the constant upward grade. Once the trail turned from paved to gravel, it got more challenging. After about an hour, covered with sweat, I was still short of Negaunee, so I turned back. I coasted every one of many miles back, never pedaling, and always with the brake ready. If you're looking for a workout, this trail is for you. It isn't what I wanted on a hot July day.

I did appreciate the historic signage along the trail. It seems that the grade was deliberate. Iron ore would be loaded, first on a plank road, then on rail cars, and easily transported downhill to the port. Then empty cars would go back uphill for another load. Makes sense!

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Great vacation activity

July, 2019 by rbzweigoron

Rode from Ishpenning to the Iron Ore History Museum and back. The trail is paved, well maintained, shady and secluded with little traffic on a Tuesday morning in July. There is one long, moderate grade from the museum back toward Ishpenning but doable with good gears even for this elder amatuer. Signage for jogs through towns could be better but Google maps will set you straight.

West End Ski and Trail in Ishpenning were great for renting bikes. Excellent bikes and service and a friendly, home town, experience.

Marquette Multi-Use Path

Beautiful !! Love this Place!!

October, 2018 by bkn94

Start Down in Harvey on the Iron Ore Heritage Trail and ride to Marquette. The trail merges with the Multi Use Path in Marquette. Ride up to Presque Isle Park. The trail hugs the shore line of Lake Superior all the way. Its a beautiful ride! Check out the shore line on the north side of Presque Isle Park. The Black Rocks, volcanic?, are very cool indeed. Love this place!

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Greenery and scenery

June, 2018 by aparrott58

Rode from ishpeming to iron museum. Glad I read the reviews. Going up the steep section would've required dismounting. There was some confusion on signage since there were mtn bike and orv trails that intersected ioht. Loved the trail markers and the kiosks and interpretive signs were great. There is more parking than indicated in this writeup. Also more trailheads. Pleasant trail all around.

Felch Grade Trail

Rutted & Mud, Stumps showing through and Rocks Felch Grade

May, 2018 by garylantagne

Starting at Tesch its a Crushed Limestone Trail In Good Condition. Then heading West for approx. 1 Mile just past the Village of Schaffer the Gravel ends and the Dust and Ruts begin.The rest is Tore Up Cinders, Terribly Rutted and Mud Holes, some over a foot deep. Very little Law Enforcement seen so Be Careful out there.
For a State Department of Natural Resources Trail its Pathetic. Dead Trees hanging over the trail also.
Don't get me wrong in Jan. Feb. and maybe into March its Groomed on a Regular Basis but the Other 9 Months Very Poor Riding Conditions.

Bruno's Run Trail

May, 2018 by akadhughes

Beautiful hike with frequent nice views of streams and lakes. It is a fairly long hike, over 9 miles and we started late in the day, we had to stop at a midway point and hike the road back to Pete's Lake campground. 2nd day we had a fellow camper drop us off at the road crossing we ended at previous day and completed the trail.
