Just groomed the entire fatbike route last night (Sunday the 23rd) (see image below). The surface is hard and fast. Reports of averaging 11 mph on the route. I dragged this route with a new groomer that has a scraper-bar attachment that really does a great job of flattening the bumpy stuff and re-packing down a flat surface. With the temps being cold all week, this will be an amazing several days to get on the fatbike.
Two new added sections:
1- from the main 5-way intersection, take the Amusement Park trail backwards. It utilizes a small connector to get back to the beginning of the Peninsula section
2- from the main 5-way intersection, take the (Homestead) green loop backwards. It takes a small connector to get to the Crazy Beaver section to ride that backwards to the yellow trail
You can't get lost...this route is pretty much the only trail worth trying to ride...just follow the smooth 28" wide surface until you get back to the parking lot!!!
You can make some cool routes with these new sections...it allows us to ride on "single-track" which is much more appealing than the wide yellow fire-trails. Hopefully the surface is firm enough to prevent damage by "big boot Billy" from making those lovely post holes!!!
Please ride it and post any of your comments on this forum...it helps the learning curve to hear from everyone that experiences this trail. Also, I have not measured a distance yet...plan on doing it Tuesday evening. Thinking it could be around 6-7 miles maybe???
