Michigan is home to so many wonderful trail systems that you could spend a summer making weekend excursions to hit them all. And you should! One trail system that needs to be on your list, of course, is Northern Michigan Mountain Bike Association. There’s a lot more than the rejuvenated Vasa Singletrack, too. With over 50 miles of unmarked singletrack in Traverse City, a completely different experience at Palmer Woods in Leelanau County, plus Cadillac Pathway and Glacial Hills, you might need more than a weekend!
