Fat Bike Trail Report

Fat Bike trails are open. Overall a very nice weekend of riding and great to see the sunshine on Sunday (and all the riders!)

Dusting of new snow Friday evening, rider packed on Saturday. Entire 25km “FatLagChilada” course has been groomed this past week and open for riding. Areas of drifting on Bootleg loop but has been rider packed. We will groom again once we receive parts to repair the “SnowDog” groomer.

The loop consists of Skaters Waltz starting to the right, the main singletrack loops Bullhead Bootleg, Twin Lakes and Sukkerwest. We also have groomed select segments in between to make the “FatLagChilada” loop. The above loops can be ridden separately. To access the inner loops, go to the start of Skaters Waltz and veer right. There are signs from that point and at key intersections where to turn to make the full loop. Please only ride on the designated areas for fat biking.

Bullhead lake is frozen for access across the lake. There is around 5-6″ of ice and folks have been riding across the lake. If not comfortable crossing the lake, use the normal access by taking Goat Ranch road to county 34 than access from highway. Otherwise use Skaters Waltz to access Bullhead lake following the signs. Assume all risk.

The Maplelag driveway is a good feeder to access Sukkerwest, Bjorps across from Sukkerwest which leads into North Star and crosses the road again to Twin Lakes.

With the hardpack conditions on the ski trails, the skate loops Skaters Waltz, the extension loops and North Loup are open for riding making for around 30km of groomed riding options.

Night ride on the fresh grooming on Bullhead Bootleg loop under the moonlight, November 30th, 2022. Night riding is a exhilarating experience with lighting accentuating the trail and almost easier to see definition of trail versus flat light on a cloudy day.
Great riding on the return of Twin Lakes singletrack, November 29th, 2022.
Bob out for a Sunday ride on the frozen groomed singletrack, November 27th, 2022.
