The Central Oregon Trail Alliance will begin to groom singletrack trails at Wanoga Sno-Park specifically for fat bikes, starting in January.

Fat bikes feature wide tires that allow for riding on groomed snow.

COTA has been working with the Bend Ranger District to create the new trails at Wanoga, located southwest of Bend off Century Drive.

Trails will be groomed with a snow machine and grooming sled, according to COTA. Two loops are planned, totaling 8 to 11 miles of fast and flowy trails, which will be 2 to 3 feet wide. The routes are currently being flagged and will not follow existing summer trails.
