A solid chunk of shed miles with the majority of the climbing is done before you get to blast a pretty sweet downhill section back to the cars.

Great trail, but the first half is marked wrong. You want to start higher up the hill on the trail called Extended Death Climb and then roll into the middle section of this and down to the bottom

Yeah. The turn off is not well marked (small yellow private property sign) and easy to go all the way down that logging road. It's a 20 minute bike hike up a steep hill. Dont ask me how I know.

Another classic FredShed Trail. Great rocky tech lines that will challenge the best of riders.

Where the trail switches back at its southern most point there's an old logging road that continues south. If you miss the trail turn and take that road it goes down hill and then ends at a rocky overlook. Good luck getting back up the hill though to return to the trail (or bushwacked down all the way to Mountaindale Rd)

Love this trail. Have also heard it called “treegina” as someone else commented. If you download Gaia GPS there is a much more detailed segment. It is steep, but not nearly as steep as Creampie.

This trail is super fun but it most definitely is showing the wrong start and finish points. They need to be switched.
