SURROUNDINGS

VMUTS trails are comprised mainly of old, forest-covered logging roads with river/stream crossings (many via bridges and culverts). VMUTS has trails suited to the needs of novice, intermediate and advanced riders. The trails are arrayed from the Trail Head in clearly marked loops of various lengths and levels of difficulty. It would take more than two weeks to experience VMUTS in it’s entirety.

TRAIL MAINTENANCE

The VMUTS organization dedicates a significant portion of their time and resources to the critical aspects of trail development and maintenance. Ensuring the sustainability of the trail system as a resource and ecosystem is of the utmost importance in order to protect local fish and wildlife and maintain approval for the use of crown lands. 
One example of ongoing maintenance is the installation of bridges and culverts (to MNR standards) which allows minimally invasive passage over waterways. Please join us in our efforts to ensure the stability of our environment for future generations to enjoy.
