    Grouse (entire old entry) + DNV (rest of trail)

This trail is one of the more "moderate" of the black diamond (advanced) trails on Fromme. There are plenty of steeps, small drops, and ramps, all the standards that make Fromme such an awesome place to ride. It drops you out on the Baden Powell Trail.

Access Info

The entrance is a not far past the entrance to Pipeline, and is a little over halfway between the fifth and sixth switchback on Mountain Hwy.
