      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.

      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. Each loop is explained in more detail below.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
