Pere Marquette Dog Hike – Inner Loop (3.4 Miles / Moderate)

December 4, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST

From AllTrails:
This is a challenging hike with some steep uphills but you are rewarded with some spectacular views. For hikers looking to take on a tougher or easier challenge, there are plenty of ways to alter this trail to make it fit what you’re looking for, by adding the outer loop for more distance, or by integrating one of the connecting trails to shorten the hike. The Illinois River is also nearby so you can make a fun day out of your trip with a visit to the river as well.

Length: 3.4 mi
Elevation gain: 646 ft
Route type: Loop

This hike has some really pretty fall colors. We can meet for lunch at the loading dock afterward, if we feel like it.

There are some pretty steep hills, so be mindful of that. We can make this shorter or longer, depending on what the group feels like.

We will meet at the visitor center. Service is extremely spotty in this area, so be prepared to not have service.

This will not be a power hike. We stop frequently for pictures and general shenanigans. We will hike at a pace the group is comfortable with, with no pup left behind.

Great Attitude and Sense of Humor
Hiking Boots are recommended, poles if you use them
Dog Necessities and Plenty of Water
Snacks, if desired

**Please do not be a no-show. My pups will have to listen to me complain about it the whole way home. Don’t make those sweet pups have to deal with that.**
