Hanna Flats Fat Bike Report

Road trip to Priest Lake for weekend of fat biking.  First up, hit Nordman Store for current Winter Rec Trails Map and Idaho Park N' Ski Pass.  Oh, and a sixer of cold ones for after the ride.  Now you will definitely want the trails map if visiting Priest in the winter, there are over 400 miles of snowmobile trails and something like 80 miles of XC trails.  You will need the Park Pass to park at many of the XC trailheads, that money goes to grooming.  Grooming is good.  OK, now that the administrative things are done, on to riding...




First, we hit up Hanna Flats.  It is one of the Park N' Ski areas.  Although there was some patchy snow and ice, not near enough for them to start grooming yet.  This is a great little area with around 8 miles of trails and all well marked.  We saw some mushrooms, a moose bed, a scratching tree and a rabbit.  We hit almost all the trails in the network (there are maps at the trailhead at North end of airstip).  It was great, but can't wait for more snow to hit it up again.  Tomorrow we head higher up for more snow...
