"We don’t have any specific restrictions on fat bikes but generally ask folks to be mindful of the conditions. If it is warm weather/soft snow and the bikes are noticeably damaging the quality of the trail for other recreational users (aka skiers) please ride on the snowmobile trail routes (road networks) instead of the wooded ski trails. This is mostly self-regulating as if it is doing any substantial damage to the trail, the person riding the bike is effectively having a miserable time and will by nature seek the harder packed snowmobile trail as it is much easier riding in that scenario."Not heading up to northern Maine? Here are seven other great places to hit the trails on your fat bike.
