These things are so fun that they get their own page! Fat bikes were originally designed for riding in the snow but their popularity has grown as people have discovered that they are fun to ride year round. These huge tires sure do look slow but on the mountain bike trails they are faster than you think. Rock, roots, or sand in your way? No problem with 4″ tires you can roll easily over anything! When winter comes the packed snowshoe trails at the Phillips School Forest are a fun challenging ride, or for something a little easier try the Wintergreen and Newman Springs ski trails which both allow fat bikes. If you don’t mind venturing a little further from Phillips definitely check these other trails out:
CAMBA fat bike trails: The Chequamagon Area Mountain Biking grooms over 45 miles of their single track trails for winter fat biking!
WinMan trails near Mantowish Waters: Known for having some of the best mountain bike trails in the state, they also groom some of them for winter biking.
Underdown Recreation area near Merrill
