Mountain Biking Parkway Fatbike trail

Start just east of The Point Grill and ride the single track clockwise toward the fire house out to Unser. The singletrack loops back on the other side of Mariposa Parkway and around the subdivision in a clockwise direction. Lots of SAND. Fat bikes/tires are a must. A minimum of 3.0 or bigger with LOW PSI is required

    This trail is fat bike specific. Nice narrow single track of dry sand through sage, cholla, juniper and high desert. This is a loop that heads east away from the Mariposa community center toward Unser and then back on the south side of Mariposa Parkway. The track is fun and flowy. Remember to keep the tire pressure low. The elevation gain is minimal.

    Trail is 6-8 inches wide making it very difficult and very challenging. The sandy soil is very unpredictable and widely variable adding in even more difficulty. This is not an easy trail. Fat tires are absolutely a must. Best for Fat bikes with 4.6 inch wide tires with very low psi. Very challenging trail when linked up to complete the loop and super fun on fat bikes. Would NOT ride it on tires less than 2.8 inches in width -It would damage the trail.
