Fat Tike Biking

Who says it’s too cold or snowy to go for a bike ride? Hop on a fat tire bike and get ready for miles of winter riding fun!

Brookview

In winter, Brookview maintains a one-mile, multi-use, natural snow recreational trail that meanders through the golf course. With gentle hills and solar LED lights, it’s an excellent spot to go for a ride. The trail opens when snow conditions are appropriate and is maintained through late February.

Theodore Wirth Regional Park

The Loppet Foundation grooms and maintains three singletrack fat-tire biking and snowshoeing trails in North Wirth: Area 36 (2.5 miles, easy), 45 North (1.5 miles, intermediate) and Conundrum (1.25 miles, advanced). Additional fat biking trails are managed by Minnesota Off Road Cyclists (MORC), these include the North Loop (Back 40) (3.5 miles), South Loop (.66 miles), Glenwood Spur (1 mile), Southwest Loop (1.9 miles, intermediate) and Brownie Lake Loop (1.5 miles, intermediate to extreme).

Curious about the trails? Check out the fat tire bike and snowshoe trails map.

Please note that biking on the Back 40 and Area 36 trails involves ski trail crossings, so you must have a true fat tire bike (3.7” tires or more and less than 10 psi tire pressure). Biking is allowed on paved and plowed bike paths or on designated mountain bike trails. Please do not ride in the Eloise Butler section of trails (Southeast Wirth) or on any groomed ski trails.
