TART Trails is working to implement new wayfinding and warming hut improvements at the Vasa Pathway. Located on state forest land, the Vasa Pathway features a series of loops (3K, 5K, 10K, 25K) that offer users a variety of challenges from easy to difficult. These trails are a recreational resource showcasing the woods and water of our region.

Wayfinding improvements will include the installation of 19 corten steel posts with location reference numbers, as well as aluminum maps on each post. Warming hut improvements include the expansion of the patio area to accommodate additional seating, which will better serve the increased number of trail users. As well, the exterior of the warming hut will receive a fresh coat of paint.
