The Vasa Skillz Building Loop located at the Vasa Bike Park in Acme 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. In addition to the Vasa Skillz Building Loops you can also find the BMX jump line located within the Vasa Bike Park.
This exciting project kicked off July 2019. It’s a perfect partnership with the Northern Michigan Mountain Bike Association and TART Trails! We’re excited to bring you this trail with the support from the Grand Traverse County Parks and Recreation.
The loops are located on the forty acre Vasa Pathway trailhead parcel owned by Grand Traverse County. The trail is designed and constructed with the International Mountain Bike Association’s best management practices to ensure a safe, enjoyable and sustainable trail. Trail construction will include clearing the trail route/6’ wide corridor, constructing a 4’ wide tread, supplementing existing soils with suitable fill materials and constructing berms, roll and jump features.
