Review: Technical only due to the windy, narrow trails. Not much for climbing or downhills, but still a very nice trail system.

Review: I am unable to write a review of the trail itself. I am from out of state and there was a $9 trail fee required at the trailhead to park your car. Not a bad deal if you have 4 riders in the car, but for a single person $9 is ridiculous. It appears that the parking lot is patrolled by the MDNR and with it being associated with your car, I'm sure a ticket would be issued. $5 trail fee for in state plates. What a disappointment.

Review: Clearly people are confusing the VASA Pathway trail with the VASA Singletrack trail!! Both are pretty amazing riding resources that offer a variety of terrain and require different skill levels. I wouldn't consider the 25k loop on the Pathway to be kids play though as some previous haters have suggested. They obviously didn't try "The Wall" LOL!! There are many different routes. Study the map at the trailhead. Copies are usually available in the restroom/changing area. As far as the 20k Singletrack loop(s) are concerned, awesome!! Mixed Singletrack w/ sand, roots, windy, twisty, narrow, wide, ups, downs and more! Tons of fun!! Make sure you have your Rec. pass to park at this trailhead.

Review: some fun sections but barely qualifies as a mtn bike trail in others. Some of the new single track sections seem to have been built with size small 26" bikes in mind

Review: Topo map reflects VASA Trail. NOT VASA Singletrack. Single Track start is off of Supply road. Yes they do cross and feed into each other but the VASA single track is NOT shown on the topo

Review: The VASA Pathway is a trail system itself; the singletrack can be accessed from the pathway or via a separate trailhead. The pathway is a system of loops (3k, 5k, 10k, and 25k) with varying degrees of difficulty. There are hills and plenty of sand. The pathway itself is pretty open the singletrack is very tight. Concur with what another reviewer said about the DNR; they were checking tags on July 13

Review: I looked up Vasa trails before heading up to visit family in the Traverse City area. If you are coming from US 131 take fox lake rd (which is on your left if you're coming from the south or your right if you're coming from the north). You will take a fox lake rd all the way to Supply rd; I believe you are on fox lake rd for about 5 miles. Take a left on supply road. The single track trail is marked by a small state park sign on your right hand side about 5-7 miles down the road from fox lake road. Once there, you will need a state park pass to utilize the park. DNR DOES CHECK!

The trail itself is very nicely groomed! It is just over a 12 mile loop with several different challenges all of the track. Sand, switchbacks, steep slopes to crawl down, close trees to squeeze through. It will keep you working hard through the whole trail. I only give this trail a 5 because of the intersecting fat bike trail. THE FAT BIKE RIDERS DO NOT STOP, YOU MUST YIELD TO THEM!

Review: Pretty smooth, quick and flowy. The berm cut outs really help you dig in and keep your speed going into the next corner

Review: This is a very well maintained trail system. The Vasa pathway is wide two track trail. Has some good climbs and Sandy spots. Great scenery and some fast downhills. There are three loops 5, 10, and 25k. There is also the Vasa single track that crosses the pathway in multiple locations. The trailhead for the single track is on supply road. The single track is fast and mostly flat but very fun to ride.
