Fat Bike Trail Report

Twin Lakes singletrack open to fat biking. Most recent grooming the evening of November 30th.   Dusting of new snow on top. Fun silky riding surface on top of rock solid groomed base . Best conditions of the season!

Once again we are grooming the Twin Lakes loop for fat biking. This is the third year of fat bike grooming at Maplelag.  Thanks Ben Olson for taking on the volunteer role to do this. We also have plans to have a groomed beginner loop closer to Maplelag. There is no fee to use the trails at this time. No rentals or guest services available in lodge until mid December. Park, ride and enjoy! 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.
