This trail is used mostly as a haven for cross-country skiers. The trail is groomed for skate-style skiing as well as traditional striding skiing. In the summer, avid mountain bikers flock to this trail just outside Traverse City in the Pere Marquette State Forest.  Three km, five km, 11km, 25km, loops provide great scenery and plenty of challenge.  A new, single tract 13 miles long parallels the main trail.  The Vasa Pathway has some killer hills -- some short and steep, some long and steep and some just plain long, including one affectionately known as "The Wall."  Don't despair, there are flatter sections more suitable for beginners in the eastern and southern parts of the trail which are accessible off Supply Road.  The main trailhead is located in Acme Township Park on Bartlett Road, off Bunker Hill Road in Acme.  A large parking lot, indoor restrooms and trail maps are available there.
