Over 60 kilometers of gorgeously wooded paths offer some of the best mountain biking in Northern Michigan. Enjoy superb cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on Timber Ridge's groomed and lighted trails and adjacent Vasa trail system, featuring 60 kilometers of challenging, moderate and easy trails. Heated lodge with fireplace, showers and restrooms. Outdoor fireplace.

The Vasa trail system abuts Timber Ridge's own trails, some of which are lighted. TR affords a convenient and comfortable place to base your skiing expedition. As previously mentioned, part of the beauty of venturing forth on the Vasa trail system from Timber Ridge is that you are not immediately faced with a two mile climb. In fact, one can avoid most of the climbing that characterizes the Vasa Trail by utilizing the Special K segment and still have a nice sized loop. There are a couple of hills but nothing a Hoosier flatlander such as myself can't survive. The lodge is a welcome and warm place with shorter trails for weaker skiers or children. The North American Vasa race starts and ends at Timber Ridge on the second weekend in February.

they do a nice job of maintaining their trails. There's enough to choose from so you can get out of the main resort and get into some decent backcountry. I used to ski here quite a lot and would get a pass by the day. They have a nice warming area in the lodge and rentals too. Good place to take the family and get a taste of XC skiing.

I wish there was a "good" bubble option, in addition to average.

We stayed in the cabins in late fall, and it was nice and quiet. The MTB trails are really good and convenient. It's pet friendly, and our great dane Gwen loved her walks in the morning. The cabins are rustic, but they have running water, a fridge and a stove. It had a space heater for heat. The wi-fi was temperamental.

Great for families and people with dogs. I imagine there are a lot of activities in the summer. It'd be interesting to visit for some cross country skiing in the winter. Really nice surroundings and scenery.

We enjoy timber ridge. Weekends are often themed and have something for the kids all weekend. It's right on the vasa trail so kids can also bike all day. Then at night the dodgeball starts. Usually a laugh fest.
