Marquette Area Outdoor Activities
The Western end of Marquette County offers, arguably, some of the finest, if not the finest, mountain biking in the U.P. With the development of the Range Mountain Biking Club Trail System during the summer of 1997, the area has about 35 miles of marked, mapped trails open for biking, with more to come. The SUNTRAC (Suicide Bowl-Hill Street) trail system provides the bulk of the trails at this time, offering trails with all levels of difficulty, from beginner to expert. Hill Streets Lookout Loop, a beginners level trail, offers a couple of scenic overlooks, which give some breathtaking views of Lake Angeline. Sandi's Trail provides some serious ups and downs for the expert level biker, along with a panoramic view of some of the local mining operations. The Suicide Bowl Trails will also offer some very challenging situations to the serious mountain biker.
The Al Quaal Recreation area offers some nice
rides on its Red and Blue trails. The Red trail, which
starts at the ski lodge, is an intermediate level trail
providing a rollercoaster type ride. The Blue trail, which
starts near the tow rope building, is a beginners level
trail, providing a mellow ride along scenic Teal Lake.
The North Teal Lake trail, which is being developed, will
offer intermediate to expert level biking along the rugged
North shore of Teal Lake.
