      There are over 60 miles of directional trails in this area. Most of these trails are for avid riders with advanced skills. Trails within the badlands are specifically for FAT BIKES because of the sandy/loose soils and arroyos that make up a large part of this trail system. There are some trails (with slightly more stable soil) above and to the west of the badlands that are accessible via plus tire size bikes. Just avoid dropping into any of the badlands if you don't have a fat bike. These trails are not easy!! Be prepared.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      eBikes Allowed: No
      AKA: Mariposa fat bike trails

      Access Info:
