The fat bike conditions are good on area forest roads and folks can also go on the packed snowshoe trail. A few folks have been on the twin lakes singletrack but expect deeper snow and challenging riding. Check with Jay on where to ride if you bring your fat bike to Maplelag.
Fat biking has exploded in popularity in recent years, opening the door to unlimited winter cycling adventures! Even though cross country skiing is our number one focus in the winter time, being avid cyclists at Maplelag, we can’t deny the fun on a fat bike! This winter we will have the snowshoe trail and Twin Lakes single track open for fat biking. Fat biking will not be allowed on the ski trails. There are also area forest roads that are good fat biking. We will do our best to keep the Twin Lakes single track packed for fat biking during the winter. Ski trail grooming will take priority but riders are encouraged to and snowshoers welcome to help pack out the trail as well!
Access to the Twin Lakes single track is off the Maplelag driveway at the bridge section. After the “bridge” section, riders will come to the ski trail and will follow the ski trail for a short while before entering the single track. The loop is right around 3 miles and comes back to the driveway. When traveling on the ski trail, please stay off the tracks when tracks are set. The proper area to ride will be in between the ski tracks.
Any questions on fat biking at Maplelag, please feel free to contact us. At this time we do not have rentals but hoping to have a fat biking fleet to rent in the near future.
