Whoop-de-doo!

Overview

No horses or ATVs

Description

Skinny is the best trail for beginners. Easy accessibility from the parking lot, and not much climbing make it a good place to learn. But, like all of the loops, a rider can very easily get in over their head (literally) in the whoop-de-doos with too much speed.

------

Nestled in the Long Cane Ranger District of the Sumter National Forest, FATS is the crown jewel of the CSRA trails, and for good reason. FATS has something for everyone. Very few technical features make FATS a great place to get beginners hooked on the sport, and the excellent flow, pump track like feel, and high speed sections combined with lots of mileage keeps bringing the seasoned riders back for more time and time again.

In 2009 FATS was awarded IMBA Epic status, and in 2010 was the host trail for the annual IMBA World Mountain Bike Summit. The trails have been highlighted in several magazines, including BIKE, Blue Ridge Outdoors, and a series of web articles for Bicycling just to name a few.

FATS consists of six individual loops, each with their own character and feel. There are two parking lots, the South Trailhead is the main parking lot, and the North Trailhead is adjacent to Big Rock and Tower. The southern loops are Brown Wave, Skinny, Great Wall, and Deep Step. Big Rock and Tower make up the northern loops.
