Yes, that really is this trail's name. The Big Fat Trail starts at the Big Fat Gap Trailhead, reached by a nine mile drive on the FSR # 62 Big Fat Gap Road, accessed from US Route 129 north of the Robbinsville area. This road is gated, and closed to the public from January 1 through April 1 annually.
The Big Fat Trail leaves the parking area near the information kiosk, descending steeply to Slickrock Creek in the valley below. This is a very steep trail, heavily used by fishermen and hikers to reach the valley floor. At 1.4 miles, the trail reaches a junction with the Nichols Cove Trail, then turns left, fords a small stream, and ends at the Slickrock Creek Trail junction.
