Northern Wisconsin Fat Bike Friendly Trails
Give it a try and have fun on the Fat Bike Friendly Trails or Northern Wisconsin!
Fat bikes on selected trails in Northwest Wisconsin

Snow Bike Rules of the Trail
Thank you, be safe, and have fun!!
- Snow bike riding Only on designated Nordic trails
- Bikes Should yield right away at all intersections
- Snow bike riders Should let track set–up until 10:00am on morning in which the track is groomed
- Snow bike lane Ride to left of classic track/yield to all skiers. Stay to right side of trail around corners and for oncoming skiers
- Trails Do not ride in soft conditions. Hard packed conditions on Wisconsin fatbike trails with 2″ new snow is ok, more than 2? (you can’t climb or descend very well). In a Wisconsin snow cycle 12″ or more with freshly groomed trails can be too soft. If you leave a rut, it’s too soft
- Snow bikes only on trails, tires must be 3.7″ or larger
- Tire pressure will often be less than 10 PSI. Enough float so you can travel over snow without leaving a tire print deeper than one inch
- Ride on the packed and firmest part of the track (do not ride in soft conditions).
- If there is not enough snow, take a “time out”. Riding on trails that are freezing and thawing (without snow coverage), can damage the trails.
- Be an ambassador for the sport: Be polite, educate other riders, and follow the rules.
