Fat Tire Bike Guidelines

  • A bike specially designed with tires that are 3.5 inches wide or wider to float on snow or soft sand.
  • Rims range from 60mm to 110mm wide, and tires that run on LESS THAN 10 psi.
  • To ride on the NTN trails front and rear tires need to be at least 3.5 inches wide
  • No mountain bikes will be allowed on trails
  • Riders need to be aware of the depth of their tire grooves
  • Rims range from 60mm to 110mm wide, and tires that run on LESS THAN 10 psi.
  • If your groove is deeper than a half inch, air pressure should be reduced. This will enhance your experience, as well as protect the trail for other users.
  • All riders are strongly encouraged to reduce air pressure. If you ride in an area with little snowfall and rock-hard groomed trails, your “high pressure” habits (7-10 psi) are NOT the right tool for the job here. You will encounter soft, deep snow the likes of which you may have never seen, and a properly aired-down tire (3-6 psi) will float and grip, while a 7-10 psi tire will definitely sink and spin.

Currently, NTN is unable to completely separate snow bikes, skiers, snowshoes, dogs, and skijor trail users therefore we ask you to respectfully share portions of the trails. Please honor the trail use designations as our signage indicates.

By following these guidelines and trail etiquette, we’ll keep users safe and smiling while enjoying the trails. Thanks!
