Located in the Pere Marquette State Forest, the Vasa Pathway features a series of loops (3K, 5K, 10K, 25K) that offer users a variety of challenges from easy to difficult. The Vasa Pathway is maintained and groomed for cross country skiing by TART Trails under an agreement with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Grand Traverse County. The Vasa Pathway is used by cross country skiers, runners, hikers, mountain bikers, walkers, and naturalist's year round. It is the home of the North American Vasa cross country ski race and the annual Iceman Cometh mountain bike race also uses a portion of the trail.
