Vasa & Timber Ridge Trails

With the Vasa Pathway trailhead connecting to Timber Ridge-maintained, on-site trails, there is a year-round flurry of activity on the trails. 

Some people get confused about the two systems, so the easiest way to understand it is that Timber Ridge has its own trail system for hikers, bikers, skiers and snowshoers, about five kilometers, that is groomed and maintained by Timber Ridge Resort.  These trails link up to the miles and miles of Vasa Pathway trails in the Pere Marquette State Forest. This system is well known and respected by outdoor enthusiasts and is the site of the annual North American VASA Festival of Races cross-country ski races.
