Stunning Marquette Michigan is rich in history and wild exploring! So many things to do in Marquette Michigan!
Use this Marquette Michigan Map for Google Maps!
Presque Isle Park is one of the most visited sites in Marquette County!
The park’s east end offers great views of the gorgeous sandstone cliffs that are visible along the loop (great for cars and biking). Be sure to check out several outlooks along the loop. It's such a perfect high vantage point for seeing Lake Superior’s waves crash against the coves and rock outcroppings hundreds of feet below.
This beautiful rock formation is a Marquette hotspot. Visitors can soak in the cool lake breeze, or dive from 10 to 15-foot cliffs into the crystal clear water below.
See Sunset Point and hike the trails - We like the Presque Isle Park Bog Walk (see on the map)
2301 Wright St, Marquette, MI 49855
Park on the left side of Wright Street near a gated bridge. Cross over the bridge and follow the river to the left to see the main falls. Some smaller falls are located below the bridge.
There are several drops at Dead River Falls, so plan about an hour to enjoy this lovely natural waterfall in Marquette Michigan.
This Upper Peninsula waterfall plunges into a rocky gorge about a half mile long, dropping close to a hundred feet in total. This UP waterfall destination is accessible and extremely beautiful.
Directions: From Marquette, head west on US 41. Turn right (north) onto County Road 492 (Wright Street). Turn left on Forestville Road about .6 miles after leaving 41. Keep on Forestville Road, over the one-lane bridge for about 2 miles. Turn left onto Ambrose Circle in the parking area. Total hike from the parking area is about a mile, so be prepared with water and good hiking shoes.
You will see Reany Falls only the way to see Dead River Falls.
595 Forestville Basin Trail, Marquette, MI 49855
Just gorgeous! The walk to the falls is pretty flat and follows the river. To reach the falls head south from Marquette on M-553. Turn right onto a dirt road just before crossing the Carp River (Marquette Mt Road). If you reach the Marquette Mountain Ski Lodge you have gone too far.
The road to the falls is a dirt road and the falls are about 1.5 miles west of M-553. Cars should be able to drive on this dirt road but you can also ride your bike. There is a small parking area on the left and the falls are very close to the parking area.
Morgan Falls is just a 10 minute drive from downtown Marquette! We love that it is a very short walk from the parking area.
A quick drive up M-553 (towards Marquette Mountain) will find you at the two track that accesses the falls (the two-track is the last right, on the large right turn, before you reach the ski hill). Follow the two-track (you’re gonna want four-wheel or all-wheel drive for this one) for 1.5 miles, until you see a moderately-sized shoulder and small sign identifying Morgan Falls on the left side. Park there.
Co Rd 550, Marquette, MI 49855, The Trail is an moderate .8 mile loop trail that ends at Wetmore Bog. We found the trail to be well marked, just follow the White blazes out and the green blazes back (or vice versa).
You will pass over boardwalks and some rocks to climb over. Just wear good sturdy walking shoes or boots and you will be fine. The trail is relatively smooth and well used.
The scenic Marquette Ore Docks are something to behold! The pocket ore dock of the Lake Superior and Ishpeming Railroad in Marquette was the first dock of its type constructed on the Upper Great Lakes.
Lagniappe is known for great Cajun food.
