Fat Tire Biking on the Vasa Pathway

4050 East Hammond Road - Search Nearby - Added by Holly Mandarich

On this trail system you'll find all sorts of pleasing endeavors, from fresh groomed trails, to birm filled - tight tree single tracks!

If you’re looking for a place to fat bike ride in the area, then this is the spot for you! To access the Vasa Pathway you’ll want to head to Timber Ridge Resort, feel free to park in the main area.

From the southeast corner of the Timber Ridge Resort, you will be able to jump on the pathway. You will access this pathway from behind the main lodge building, look for a path that follows under a bridge, stay on that and you'll be headed the right direction. To find a detailed map of the winter single track on the Vasa pathway, see here! I would highly recommend saving the map in link previous, as the pathway is mostly hidden among the trees, things can tend to look the same!

On this trail system you'll find all sorts of pleasing endeavors, from fresh groomed trails, to birm filled - tight tree single tracks. If you’re interested in getting a local’s perspective stop by Einstein Cycles and ask Keith to take you on a ride!
