Great loop with multiple water fall spots. Bring plenty of water, it gets humid and has some uphill spots. Great to walk along creek most the way and cool to see old the water pipe still there, although with plenty of leaky spots. Went on a Saturday and wasn’t very busy, only saw a few other hikers and a few bikers. Great hike with dogs. Also lots of other trails to take that connect and good maps along the way to help.

Beautiful views!! The main loop has a paved path which is very easy to walk. However, if you venture off of the path onto the side trails/rock formations the hike is more moderate. My favorite parts of the hike were walking on the rock formations and watching the cliff jumpers.

Awesome views! Room to improvise down by shorelines. Cliff diving too.

Nice area. Most of the trail was paved but I would suggest walking by the cliffs on the back side of the island (unpaved). Also a place you can jump into Lake Superior. Great views and easy trail.

We hiked this trail today with our dog. There are several trails intersecting and this route was fairly easy to follow but did not go by this name. The waterfall was gushing, Trail was dry and well kept. It does narrow quite a bit and we saw a half dozen trail bikes out and one trail runner. My only reason for a 4 is the road noise that can be heard for several sections.

Nice scenic trail. Moderately busy - was there on a weekday afternoon and met a couple runners and five or six mountain bikers - all very friendly and considerate (had my dog with me).

I’ve lived in Marquette 45 years and never knew this waterfall was just off Wright street. Great hike.

Be careful, ran straight into a bear ON the trail yesterday. One of my favorite places to run and I know that coming close certain wildlife is always a risk while running in the woods. Don’t let that totally detour you if you want to camp or hike there because it’s really great, but uh, maybe bring bear spray.

Nice trail in the NTN trail network - Marquette North Trails. Connects to many other trails to give more options depending on how far you want to journey. The Ox Bow loop follows closer to the river and gives the opportunity to see more water foul. Well marked trail and easy to follow signs at the major trail crossings.

First part of Gorge-Ous trail from Noquemanon Trail Head. Well laid out trail takes you along Carp River and features great views of the river. Areas of the trail area cut into the sides of Mount Marquette and can be tricky if wet. This section extends from the trailhead to the Carp River. A second section extends from the river to the top of Marquette Mountain (ski hill).

The main loop is very easy as it is a road, but it is fun once you venture off into the side trails. I enjoy walking along the cliff trail which is more difficult, but well worth it to see the lake. Only downside is how crowded some spots can be during the summer.

Although the trail was rated as easy, it was not easy for me as there were many tree roots that presented tripping hazards. It was very nice in the woods and we only encountered a few hikers. The descent for the trail followed the Lake Superior shoreline that provided a beautiful view!

Was looking forward to hiking around this park with my dogs. However, I drove all the way there to find out my dogs are not allowed on the trails and have to stay in the truck..... even though the website says they are dog friendly and as long as their on a leash they are allowed all over. Very disappointing.
