Mulligan Falls is one of those remote, wild waterfalls that has no easy access point. There are no established trails through the overgrown banks, not even a game path. But at 40 feet in height and with multiple drops, all different from the last, the incentive is too good to pass up.
Marquette County is a waterfall explorer’s dream. With all different types and sizes, we never know what we might run across. Morgan Falls and Carp River Falls are two that offered us plenty of surprises.
Welcome to the Huron Mountains.
That’s the message we received when we crested the top of the Blind 35 Hill. No special platform, no group of people. Just simply the mountains.
Thomas Rock, previously known as Gobbler’s Knob, may not have the 360-degree views that the neighboring Sugarloaf Mountain has, but it still offers something spectacular.
Steve and I decided to kick 2016 off right; waterfalls, hiking and a cabin in the U.P. We took some free time away from work and family for just the two of us – and the beagles, of course. I looked at it as a blessing for the new year and that this will be the year we finally purchase the perfect property for our home.
Sugarloaf Mountain may not be Mount Everest, but it certainly has something to offer those in the Marquette area. Honestly, I could have sat up there all day, admiring the view. Miles and mile of forest in one direction, Lake Superior 470 feet below in another. This 360 view of the Marquette area is pretty breath-taking, and I don’t say that a lot about views.
