I’m not exactly sure what classifies something as a mountain. Hogback is 1,220 feet above sea level. Technically, I suppose that’s more than a little shy, but they are affectionately called mountains in the U.P..
Sugarloaf has stairs to help you get to the top, and some rails to enjoy the view. Hogback is all trails and definitely my favorite of the two. Hogback would take us 30 to 45 minutes to get to the top, depending on how quickly the travelers felt like going. It’s a fantastic spot winter, spring, summer or fall. With winter probably being my favorite.
