They intersect, but are different. For the single track park off of Supply Rd.

Yes, but they do intersect in a couple of places. I believe at the 13 and 8 km markers.

Unless I am completely misreading my maps, the Supply Rd lot will not start me off at marker 1?

Sorry, those are the markers on the Vasa Pathway that intersect with the Singletrack.

Correct. Pathway = two track width non-motorized trail with trailhead off Bartlett road. You'll actually cross is a couple times riding the singletrack and you can even access it from Supply Road if you ride down perch lake road to where it crosses.

Since the thread is about the VST I figured it was a safe assumption you wanted the singletrack.

You assumed correctly. I had some confusion with my maps. I was looking at the map for VASA Pathway and thinking it was the VST, even though in GIANT font at the top it says VASA PATHWAY. Which is why I had a question about parking. But alas, I figured it out and should be there (VST) Friday after Arcadia.
