Glenwild Loop (Winter Fat Bike Route)

Starting in 2016, you can extend your singletrack riding season into the winter thanks to the Storm Cycles grooming crew, who recently purchased a Timbersled outfit for grooming the Glenwild Loop for fat bikes. The official fat bike trail route starts on the backside from the Bitner Road access point, and consists of the entire Glenwild Loop making for a 10.5 mile, 1,200’ vertical loop of packed snow-surface singletrack.

Getting to the Glenwild Fat Bike Trail

There are two ways to access the Glenwild Fat Bike trail, both of which start from the Spring Creek trailhead off of Glenwild Drive. If it’s been a few days since the last storm, chances are that showshoes and hikers have packed down the front-side Stealth switchbacks enough to access the loop directly from the parking area. However, if this proves too difficult or soft conditions exist, you can access the groomed portion more easily by riding pavement via Bitner Road to the access point on the backside of the loop.

Alternatively, for those without a fat bike and are simply looking to try something new for the day, park at the Storm Cycles shop and the fine folks there can get you setup with a fat bike rental and pointed in the right direction.

When to Ride the Glenwild Fat Bike Trail

The fat bike route is entirely snow-dependent, however, it’s typically rideable from December – February. Additionally, the grooming schedule is based on the weather patterns, however the grooming crew does their best to hit it as soon after a storm cycle as possible.
