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!
