The Pioneer Loop is a wonderful hike that offers waterfall views and a scenic forest. This hike is great for intermediate hikers, and is close to Marquette.

Take the Benson Grade trail to Pioneer Loop part 1 --> Freak N Nature --> Greywalls --> Mossy Connector. There are a variety of trails that connect within the loop, so make sure to grab a map before starting out!
