AKA Hero Dirt. Yes, your ideal conditions that you want to hit up first before any of your friends find out. Sure you want to keep it low key, but be a good trail steward and let your buddies know its time to shred.

Fat Tire is a quality connector trail that hugs the side of the foothills, dipping in and out of their contours like a tattoo on a fat person’s belly. It’s not technically challenging, but it does have a bit of exposure to the steep hillsides. Fat Tire Traverse forms part of a popular loop with Sidewinder and Freestone Ridge.

    One short soft area in the shade but not bad – otherwise primo
