Description

The climbing on CR 550 is home to many great routes ranging from toprope, traditional, and boulder problems. These areas have good parking, well maintained hiking trails, and summits with awesome views.

Most if not all parking is in state recreation areas that require a MI state rec pass. Be sure to read and observe rules posted at the trailheads and respect our wild and protected areas. 

Getting There

CR 550 is the only highway heading north out of Marquette. Follow the road for about 5 miles till you see the Sugarloaf parking on the right. All areas access and parking come after sugarloaf.

The parking areas lay out as follows: Sugarloaf, Wetmore pond/Hogback, Wetmore Landing, Harlow Lake Pathway, Harlow Lake Road, Little Presque Isle.
