Marquette, MI review

Marquette is a great destination for mountain biking. The area has a great variety of trails from flat beginner trails to several super fun flow trail offerings to gnarly technical singletrack, all mixed with miles and miles of scenic intermediate trails.

There's also plenty to do when you get off your bike. Miles of sandy Lake Superior beaches are within city limits, there are 2 great microbreweries and another brew pub and there are typically music acts playing at local establishments most nights of the week.

There are more than 50 miles of signed and mapped trails essentially within city limits and rideable from any hotel in town. In addition there are another 30-40 miles of trails with in 20 miles that aren't as developed or easy to find but add variety and can be explored with a little information from the locals.

All 4 of the local bike shops are great sources of information, expertise and gear and stock a full line of bikes including in-stock, top of the line models.
