The Fat Bike trail can be described as a bowl of powder chowder! Riding is doable but very technical and challenging. The climbs are not rideable and expect a lot of hike and bike if venturing out (please walk on side as much as possible) Once the fat bike groomer is repaired, Ben will groom out the loop. We have been shoveling and packing old school style, trying to improve the riding on the very beginning and end of the loop. A few folks have been venturing out and having fun.
Lot of snow in the woods and should be a some great riding to come the second half of February.
This is the third year of fat bike grooming at Maplelag. Thanks Ben Olson for taking on the volunteer role to do this.Trail fee is winter pass, good for the season. Trail fees help cover grooming and property tax expenses. To access the trail, take either loon return ski trail to access the start of the bridge section for twin lakes or take the driveway all the way down to the bridge section and enter where the orange cones are. Please monitor tire pressure and only 3.8″ or wider tires please to keep the trail deck smooth as much as possible. If you need to walk, please push bike on the trail and walk on the side. Finally, if temps forecasted above 32, please do not ride. This will ensure good riding for others. Thanks!
