Mostly a hiking trail but most of the trail on Fromme can be ridden. The trail is used to connect various trails on fromme, or as a cross-mountain transport.

Decided that Bikepacking up mountain had to become a thing of mine so I did it again... this time I went the right way to Mt. Fromme.

 Much harder than expected and quite challenging to ride east to west. Quite technical.

 This is the hardest blue trail I’ve ever ridden. Especially east to west; I had to push my bike.

 Yeah, that was the blackest blue I've ever ridden. However, I had a great time rolling those steps and re enforced stone descents back to parking. Great trail in its own right.

 This trail is exceptionally technical with massive uphill rock gardens, steep stairs, and not much fun for me as an intermediate rider
