Fat Biking

The Adventure Center has several trails designated for daily fat bike use, see trail report for open trails. Additional terrain open for fat biking on Sundays and Thursdays as conditions allow.

Go where you can't with your mountain bike. What started as a way for cyclists to ride through the winter, now is a fun, year-round activity on terrain that was once un-rideable (snow, sand, and mixed-condition trails).

The wide, or FAT, tires and low tire pressure (4 inch minimum with a PSI of less than 15) roll like a snowshoe over snow and sand. The low tire pressure gives great traction in the snow and over rocks and roots.


$32 for a half day and $42 for a full day.
$50 Full Day Rental & Trail Pass Bundle.

Our rental bikes are by Framed Bikes of St.Paul, MN.

Fat Bike Demo Ride:

Sunday and Thursday 1:00pm $15
Join a staff member for a 30-60 min. intro and ride leaving from the Adventure Center. Dress warm and wear insulated footwear and heavy gloves. Please call ahead to confirm ride is on for the day!
