Trail was built with toonie races in mind.
There is a new logging road that has eliminated the first climb. Head up the new logging road, and trail will be evident on the right.
Due to the loss of trail at the start, there has been some additional trail added at the end that now connects directly into Tinder.
As far as the name of the trail... No Fred was involved in the build. It was built by a father and son team. On completing the trail the father told his son all trails need a name. His son said "lets call it Fred". After 4 months of arguing with a 3 year old about the name - the name stuck.
To get to the trail, pass the pseudo tsuga shelter, then take the first left (at the road corner). Cross the bridge, then follow the access 2 road. Trail is located up a spur road on the left (south). Look for a large stump with a face on it, and follow that up to the wood carving.
