Turning your pedals just a stones throw away from Yellowstone National Park, you'll be riding an epic adventure.

Features -none-

This trail is for winter use only when snow covered.

Overview

You'll be riding in tall lodge pole conifers, the historic Yellowstone fire burns and along the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River. The Fat Pursuit provides a fantastic excuse to not only achieve an outstanding accomplishment but venture into Yellowstone National Park during the quietest time of the year, and make some turns in the Tetons.
