Find Your Trail
The TART Trails network currently consists of several multi-use trails in Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties as well as a cross-town bike route. Our mission is to provide and promote a trail network that enriches people and communities throughout the greater Traverse region. Check out the map to learn more about the available trails!

Trails Benefits Study
TART Trails helped conduct a year-long study of the benefits of trails and why they are important to the community.Learn more here
Vasa Skillz Loop
The Vasa Skillz Building Loop is designed specifically for kids and adults new to mountain biking to hone their skills, while still hopefully staying upright. Two one-mile, single-track loops have been completed and feature elements such as jumps, table tops, berms, and rock gardens designed to help people advance their mountain biking skills. The more technical sections of the trail even provide an option to ride around them (a big perk for beginners) until the rider is ready to take on the challenge.
