Benefits of being a member

More trails. Great trails. More rides. More friends. More great experiences.

Be part of the mountain bike movement that builds and protects great mountain biking experiences.

With the full support of IMBA, FATRAC will continue its long tradition of building and maintaining trails like Darrington (aka Salmon Falls), Sweetwater, Granite Bay, Foresthill Divide Loop, Culvert and Connector Trails in the Auburn and Folsom Lake State Recreation Areas.

You may have ridden and possibly helped maintain and improve these popular trails. Unfortunately, these trails are so popular that they are becoming overcrowded.   Recognizing this problem, FATRAC developed a strong partnership with Placer County Parks and, with support and grants from REI, the club helped construct 28 new miles of trails at Hidden Falls Regional Park in North Auburn. 

FATRAC, as a new IMBA Chapter, won't rest on its laurels.  The club is already working with energetic trail-advocates, local bike shops and land managers, like the Placer Land Trust, to create more singletrack beyond Hidden Falls, construct a bike park in Auburn, and establish an adopt-a-trail program to help maintain local trails.  The future of our region's mountain biking looks brighter than ever, and FATRAC, with the support of IMBA, will be there every step of the way.

FATRAC IMBA is an 80,000-strong network of individuals, organizations and companies that share your commitment. Thank you for your support.
