DON’T MISS THE UP200 Who let the dogs out? We did! Join thousands of spectators lining the streets for the annual fur-friendly event as mushing teams take off from downtown Marquette.

MARQUET TE CRAF T BEER WEEK Arguably one of the best weeks of the year—MCBW is a five-day celebration of Michigan beer + breweries in downtown Marquette—featuring tap takeovers, food + beer pairings, and pre-parties, plus it all leads up to UP Fall Beer Fest.

POL AR ROLL = Marquette County winter means serious snow, serious fat biking, and serious fun. The Polar Roll is a 25-mile fat tire bike race featuring tons of awesome riders, excellent terrain, and a Bacon + Hugs Aid Station, all followed by an epic after-party at Marquette Mountain.

THE FRESH COAST FILM FESTIVAL = The first of its kind: a documentary film festival celebrating the outdoor lifestyle, water-rich environment and resilient spirit of the Great Lakes and Upper Midwest. Engage in adventure tours along the shore all weekend.

EDUCATION IS “U.P.” HERE, LITERALLY. “This summer I conducted research on the impact of rock climbing on lichen in the Upper Peninsula. This allowed me to combine my passion for rock climbing with my science curriculum, all while getting to explore the U.P. I have been able to enhance my connection to the natural world, all while relating to topics covered in biology classes. I consider myself lucky to go to a school in such an amazing area. I can’t imagine being anywhere else.”

BEACH FROM THE SANDY SHORES OF MCCARTY’S COVE TO THE VOLCANIC BLUFFS OF BLACK ROCKS, WHEN IT COMES TO BEACHES, MARQUETTE COUNTY HAS SUPERIOR COVERAGE.

10

1-800-544-4321


1 12 3

1 MCCART Y’S COVE = Among the most popular of Marquette beaches is McCarty’s Cove, beloved for its expansive view of Lake Superior and the historic Harbor Lighthouse. Throw in some volleyball nets and lifeguard supervision during high season, and you’ve pretty much guaranteed yourselves a good, safe time for all. Close to our vibrant downtown, McCarty’s Cove is the perfect place to launch sandy, shoreline fun with the family. 2 LIT TLE PRESQUE BEACH = As secluded as it is scenic, Little Presque beach, nestled on the shores of Superior, is one of the coolest spots to chill out by the water, without the crowds. Locals head here for perfect days or kicked-back evenings. Pathways—rocky, scenic and accessible—spool out nearby, so fit in a trail run or family hike. 3 BL ACK ROCKS BEACH = Located on Presque Isle’s west side, the beach itself is only a few dozen feet wide, with several-story bluffs on both sides. But it’s the best place to prepare for an excursion — and, if you’re feeling brave enough, you can even jump from the Black Rocks themselves. 4 SOUTH BEACH = Just south of downtown along the city bike trail, South Beach is broad, smooth and also super kid- and dog-friendly, making it perfect for both lying and playing under the sun, all day long. Lifeguard on duty during peak visitation.

FALLS

77 WATERFALLS IN

MARQUETTE COUNTY —Pure Michigan

12

1-800-544-4321

PUT THESE THREE WATERFALLS ON YOUR LIST, AND CHECK THEM OFF, ALTHOUGH WE DON’T RECOMMEND RUSHING...


YELLOW DOG FALLS = The pathway to Yellow Dog Falls is as scenic as the falls themselves. From the trailhead, it’s an easy hike to these wilderness falls. Native brook trout—Michigan’s State Fish—swim lazily in rocky pools. 5 miles up river is Pinnacle Falls (pictured below). It’s a separate hike and requires at least a half day—longer if you stop to pick the lush blueberry patches in late summer.

DEAD RIVER FALLS = If you’re looking for adventure, Dead River Falls has you covered. With more than four series of falls to find, you’re bound to have a good time. Full disclosure: the higher you get, the trickier the trek, but it’s definitely worth the effort.

DEAD RIVER FALLS

LAT: 46° 34' 6.9996" N LONG: 87° 28' 41.9988" W

MORGAN FALLS = If there were a difficulty rating for Marquette waterfall access, Morgan Falls would be the bunny hill. Nevertheless, Morgan Falls is a must-visit for all ages.

1 NOQUEMANON TRAIL NET WORK (NTN) = Most people know these trails as the “South Trails” or “North Trails.” The NTN trail system is built with all rider styles and skills in mind — flow, technical, jump, freeride, DH, dual slalom and kids/beginner trails.

The singletrack system has received national acclaim as a premier mountain bike destination in several publications, including Bike Magazine, Singletracks, Freehub, Dirtrag, MTBR, Silent Sports Magazine and others. 2 RAMBA = Ride miles of trail in Marquette County’s West End, built over the decades by grassroots trail organization RAMBA (Range Area Mountain Bike Association). The system is a Bronze Level IMBA Ride Center, with trailheads throughout the Iron Range. 3 HARLOW LAKE AREA = With four incredible vistas — Hogback, Top of the World, Sugarloaf, and Bareback — the Harlow Lake area offers some of the most difficult technical riding in the Midwest. While there are some beginner to intermediate routes, most trails are built on rock outcrops with punchy technical climbs and rocky, steep downhills.

AUTUMN CALLS FOR SOME SERIOUS OUTDOOR ADVENTURE, AND BETWEEN THE COOLER DAYS AND WARMER COLORS, MARQUETTE COUNTY ALWAYS ANSWERS.


COLOR IN THE FORECAST. With its vibrant reds, vigorous golds and blissful, blustering breezes, autumn is the ultimate season. And although autumn’s peak is only a few short weeks, your experience will be ingrained forever. So, take out your camera, take in the crisp autumn air, and capture the colors. Get started with these three outings. DRIVE UP COUNTY ROAD 550 = Climb Sugarloaf Mountain for a panoramic view of the Huron Mountains and Lake Superior.  ontinue on 550 to the tiny town of Big Bay. C For the return trip, take County Road 510, a winding tunnel of autumn color. Stop at Thomas Rock for a vista that is both accessible and incredibly beautiful. Farther down the road visit Yellow Dog 510 Falls (a short hike down river) and Big Pup Creek Falls. Then stop at the 510 bridge (built over the Dead River) for a perfect pic of the fiery foliage.

MOUNT MARQUETTE = (not to be confused with Marquette Mountain) provides an expansive city-view accessible by car.  urn left on Cliff Power Road two miles east T of downtown Marquette. This one-way drive will take you to the top of the mountain and back down to County Road 553.

THE IRON ORE HERITAGE TRAIL = is a 47-mile interpretive trail system spanning Marquette County from the Iron Range to Lake Superior.  ome key points of interest include the S historic towns of Ishpeming and Negaunee, which are teeming with antique stores and radiating small-town charm. Stop into the Iron Industry Museum, which overlooks the Carp River and the site of the region’s first iron forge.

MARQUETTE, MICHIGAN —

A FAT-BIKER’S DREAM TOWN. – Outside Magazine, 2018

WINTER ADVENTURES. Marquette County has comfortably made its name as the fat-biking Mecca of the U.S. For years we’ve celebrated the sport and perfected trail-grooming technology, paving the way for competing trail systems across the country. With an average snowfall of 200 inches, 80 miles of groomed singletrack, and three trail networks, we take snow biking and grooming seriously.

Northern Lights

1-800-544-4321

WHEN SOLAR STORMS RAGE, THE NORTHERN LIGHTS IGNITE IN UNFORGETTABLE NIGHTS OVER LAKE SUPERIOR. MARQUETTE COUNTY IS ONE OF A FEW LOCATIONS IN THE LOWER 48 WHERE YOU CAN WITNESS THIS PHENOMENON FIRST-HAND.


TRACKING THE BEAUTY. Your odds of catching the northern lights are uncertain, but it’s surely worth a shot, and Marquette County just happens to be the perfect spot. The dark sky over Lake Superior is an awesome backdrop for a light show, without even having to leave the city. MCCARTY’S COVE = On this sandy beach located minutes from downtown, see the aurora borealis alongside another light display—the beam of the Marquette Harbor Lighthouse —which has swept Lake Superior for more than 150 years. PRESQUE ISLE PARK, AKA BLACKROCKS = This park provides the depth, the darkness and the feeling that you are miles away from the city, even though you haven’t left town. Just remember, the park closes at 11:00 p.m. in the summer and 8:00 p.m. in the winter. M-28 BEACH = For a more secluded spot, head out to M-28 Beach. This stretch of sandy shore offers stellar views of the night sky, 11 miles east of the city lights of Marquette. Tracking the northern lights takes patience, persistence, and probably luck. Improve your odds by checking the weather for clear skies and downloading a reputable app that offers aurora predictions.

D OWNTOWN S

BIG BAY THE HISTORIC TOWN OF BIG BAY BEGAN AS “RED TOWN,” ON THE SHORES OF LAKE INDEPENDENCE IN NORTHERN MARQUETTE COUNTY.

52

1-800-544-4321

Always a sawmill town, the tiny burg attracted the Brunswick company, which cut bowling pin blanks here in the early 1900s. Brunswick also raised the level of the lake and moved the town to its present location. In 1940 Henry Ford purchased most of the town for its lumber resources. He renovated the hotel for his company and added a post office and private quarters.

Visitors can stay in the Ford Suites and venture out to the Yellow Dog River Waterfalls, Thomas Rock Overlook, Perkins Park Campground, and historic Burns Landing. The Lake Superior shore is minutes away. Enjoy fishing, boating, birding, hiking, swimming, Nordic skiing, snowmobiling, and exploring the many waterfalls and overlooks the area has to offer.
