Winthrop Fatbike Snowshoe
A 30-inch wide groomed trail for fat bikes and snowshoes. Start from the Town Trailhead or Winthrop Fish Hatchery parking lot. This trail begins with easy, twisty trails and changes to rolling loops after crossing Twin Lakes Road. The Bitterbrush loop is slightly easier than the Barnsley Loop. $10 Methow Trails fat bike pass required, available at Methow Cycle & Sport.
Pearrygin State Park
The 30-inch wide groomed trails in the Park range from flat near the lake to rolling hills and some sustained climbs.

Sno Park permits support winter trail preparation, lot and equipment maintenance, and pay for trail grooming staff!
There's nothing better on sunny winter days in the Methow than taking my fatbike to Lloyd Ranch and riding along, looking out at one of the most beautiful views in the valley with Pearrygin Lake in the foreground with snowy mountains behind.
