FISH CANYON FAT BIKE TRAIL & BEARLODGE FAT BIKE TRAIL
A BHNF-Bearlodge Ranger District/SCGMBA joint venture to bring a FAT BIKE system into play into the Black Hills.
By definition, fat biking is prohibited by a Special order in the XC ski areas and the Snowmobiles trails in parts South Dakota and parts of Bearlodge Snowmobile Trails.
SCGMBA proposed a plan to groom the Bearlodge for fat biking. We were told to look at other options. That being, Black Buttes, an area south of Sundance Wy. We scouted and came up with Fish Canyon.
We were asked to create another Fat Bike Trail System in the Bearlodge and we succeeded.
We are in a partnership with Wyoming Non Motorized trails with a MOU to groom the BEaRlodge with a State snow machine and grooming equipment.
We ask you the fat biker to use the fat-bike specific area as much as possible.We are working on the change of Special Order for snowmobile trails.
some snowmobile access is available the Bearlodge Snowmobile system. Trail A to junction of trail J to Bearlodge Safety Shelter. See map
NO E-BIKES ON SNOWMOBILE TRAILS OR GROOMED FATBIKE TRAILS -
THEY ARE CONSIDERED MOTORIZED WHEELED VEHICLES. WE CHECKED AND NO ALLOWANCES MADE.
This an at -risk activity and your responsible for your own activity.
Wyo. Stat. Ann. §§ 1-1-121 to 1-1-123
