Winter Fat Biking

Winter Fat Biking the Shady Rest Winter Trails

Do you have Winter Fat Biking Experiences you'd like to share? Find out How!

  • Shady Rest Park is an extensive and popular public recreation facility located just north of the Mammoth Lakes Welcome Center at the end of Sawmill Cutoff Road. In winter the park serves as a staging area for winter activities. Winter Fat biking is allowed on the groomed motorized OSV trails, and non-motorized winter trails that can be accessed from the Shady Rest staging area. Only Purpose-built fat bikes with 3.8” wide tires or wider with a recommended tire pressure of 6-10 PSI are allowed on trails. If you leave a rut deeper than 2 inches or can’t ride in a straight line... it’s too soft to ride! Firm snow is the best snow. Conditions may deteriorate over the course of the day. Beware of icy patches. Get out and enjoy winter on two wheels!
