A nice way to make Blue Ridge an after-work loop (if the days are long or you get on your pedals) with the current available options. Frye Lake is an enjoyable start/finish as Fossil Hill is often pretty busy in late summer with climbing traffic in addition to hikers and mountain bikers. Highly recommend detouring up to Blue Ridge Lookout if you have time. Hopefully we'll have more singletrack climbing options in the future but for now this is "PNW style" with a chunk of gravel road climbing.
