OTHER AMENITIES Fat Tire Biking The sand is flying and you're dashing down a hill, with a panorama of the incredible Wisconsin countryside as your view. That's the experience of fat tire biking in the unforgettable Wisconsin barrens. In recent years fat tire biking—bikes with tires that are four or five inches wide and keep you stable on sand and other surfaces—have gained a ton of fans. The bikes were initially devised for Alaskan winters, but have adapted perfectly to the snowy trails sur- rounding Sand Valley. At Sand Valley you have two options for fat tire biking—the Quicksand Trail and the Whitville Loop Trail. So hop on a bike at the clubhouse and explore Sand Valley's surroundings. QuiCKsand Trail: A relatively easy loop over a mile will help get you adjusted to fat tire biking or pre- pare you for a more challenging ride. Of course, you can simply run the loop more than once, and while riding you'll get a great look at Aldo's Garden, the Chicken Coop, and Sand Valley's practice facility. WhiTville loop: A more advanced trail, this will reward you with spectacular views of the sandy hills and nature that sprawls through the sand barrens of Wisconsin. Over three miles, this trail runs along an 80-foot sand ridge, with the incredible courses of Sand Valley below, and the fully restored prairie on the other side. This is a more advanced trail, and takes the rider through rolling hills, stands of red pine, and provides a sense of all the features that make up the property at Sand Valley. 52 | 53 sand valley BEYOND GOLF AT SAND VALLEY There's more to Sand Valley than just great golf.
