The fat bike phenomenon has hit Methow Valley, and Pearrygin Lake State Park is a great place to give it a try! Take a First Day “Bike” ride in the park with local fat tire bike enthusiasts. Ride through the shrub steppe on the Rex Derr Trail with views overlooking Pearrygin Lake. Drop down to tour the park, looking and listening for evidence of winter wildlife—including tracks, bird songs and howls. Prefer to go on foot? Bring your snowshoes, and head out along the same trail ahead of the bikers.
When we’re done riding and snowshoeing, we’ll have a free barbecue-style lunch, cocoa, coffee and social time at the park’s headquarters. You’re welcome to stay and play in the snow following the hike and ride.
Please call the park ahead of time if you wish to participate in the barbecue following the ride and snow shoe treks.
