Marquette's Multi-Use Path encompasses 19 miles of paved trail that circles the city from Presque Isle Park in the north to the town of Harvey in the south. The trail provides access to neighborhoods, shopping, business districts, city attractions, and recreation sites, including the popular Mattson Lower Harbor Park and Iron Ore Heritage Trail.
The eastern leg of the trail follows the shore of Lake Superior, offering great views and beach access.
There are numerous access points and parking areas throughout the city. Park at Presque Isle Park, Shiras Park, Mattson Park, Founders Landing Park and South Beach Park for lake access. Visit Marquette's website for more information (under "Related Content" to the right).
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.
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!
This trail runs along Lake Superior, not Lake Huron as stated. You can access excellent restaurants and businesses in Marquette while biking along a smooth, well maintained paved trail. The trail can get a little busy at times.
