Clear trails for the most part, but may run into occasional puddles or stretches of muddy areas. It is encouraged to go through puddles, and not around them. Also to turn back on long muddy stretches that damage or widen trails.

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.
