Trail FDH
If you park on Brook St at the Brook Conservation Reserve sign its a 4.96km steep uphill push that took me 1hr 22mins pushing my DH rig up. Note: its a steep push. But its the fastest, most direct way to get to the top of Fringed.
Fringed was greasy and slippery which made the steep dh sections interesting. Would be an awesome trail when dry.

Trail FDH
Btw. Classic climb means: using the forrest road where FDH exits (climb over the gate using the two step ladder) always stay on this main gravel road. Left once on a open area then when you reach the crossing with Dun Mountain Trail. Head up left to Fringed hill. Takes about 1.5 hour pushing up the bike
