If you’re new to fat biking, Haul Road is the perfect place to start. Groomed by a snowmobile, Haul Road is the widest (at least two-feet wide) and one of the most-compact groomed singletrack in the CCSRA—making it idea for beginners to practice their fat biking skills.

This route is an easy 2.3-mile loop with small, rolling hills—no big climbs, switchbacks, or fast descents. It’s a nice, easy trail that will help you develop your fat bike skills and build your confidence. Once you’ve successfully completed the Yawkey Beginner Fat Bike route—and if you’re feeling comfortable—we recommend our Yawkey Intermediate Fat Bike route.

Know before you go:

  • A minimum of 3.7” tires are required for use on the groomed singletrack
  • The Minnesota DNR prohibits biking on the snowmobile trail within the CCSRA from December 1 to April 1
  • Dogs are not allowed on groomed trails
  • Review important CCRSA rules and information
