Is there access to the VASA system from Holiday road? I want to ride from the State Park campground to the singletrack loop this way with minimal auto traffic. I know I can pick up the TART right at the campground and head East to Holiday. Any input from locals or thos familiar with this would be appreciated.

Rode the VASA single track loop Wednesday morning the trail is riding great right now no trees down and the
colors are awesome. In the Traverse City area 75% of the leaves are still on the trees.

Rode the Vasa Single Track last Friday and it was in really good shape . They have done some changing since I rode it in June , glad I cut my handle bars down some , pretty tight in some spots . The trail also is 15 miles long now and very well marked . A special thanks to the people that are working on these trails .

Rode the VASA marked singletrack today along with a portion of the VASA 25 ski trail (including the jackpine extension). Was clear other than the leaves, but a little muddy/icy in some of the corners. All in all a in GREAT shape for the middle of December! 8) Get out and ride it this week, it's supposed to be warm. I'll be out riding the unmarked and more of the ski trail from the Bunker Hill trail head tomorrow morning around 8.


Get out and ride.

Does anyone know what the Boyne Mountain MTB trails are like at this point in time? My family is going to the waterpark there this Sunday for a few days and was wondering if it'll be worth bringing a bike along.

Has anyone ridden this lately? How is the trail?

Edit: By "this", I meant the VASA trail.

Looks like VASA has it's own conditions thread:

I did notice that the link from the trail guide leads to this topic.

Thanks! I figured "Other Trails" was a bit of a catch-all. I'll email the webmaster to let them know.

Rode the trails in Gladwin on Monday. They are in good shape for the most part. A few sticks down here & there. It was my first time riding this trail. Worth the trip from Bay City & I will definitely get back up there again. The description on the MMBA Trail Guide pretty much sums it up. If no one is there, ride the loop both ways as a way to mix it up.

True. Ogemaw can stay very wet in areas. No clue about it right now.

Since you've ridden it, do you have a better map or something marked up that would be better then the current one?
