No Fred was involved in the build. It was built by a father and son team. On completing the trail the father told his son all trails need a name. His son said "lets call it Fred". After 4 months of arguing with a 3 year old about the name - the name stuck.

Access Info

To get to the trail, pass the pseudo tsuga shelter, then take the first left (at the road corner). Cross the bridge, then follow the access 2 road. Trail is located up a spur road on the left (south). Look for a large stump with a face on it, and follow that up to the wood carving.

       Top of Fred has a good amount of snow still. Once you get to the bear entrance it’s pretty clear, but some debris and a few trees down!

       A fun little trail, too bad it isn't longer. Great to combine with Middle Powersmart and whichever trails below you like.

       One of my favorite trails in Squamish. Expect some fast flow but also a few techy bits. Fred is a bit out of the way, so it doesn’t see too much traffic. Other trail favorites in Squamish are:

       Fun trail, more of a black than a blue rating as there ate a couple steep areas, optional rock roll and techy sections to ride. Good combo into Tinder.

       Qualifier on the following: I'm not an XC/enduro type.

      It's about as flowy as a dentist appointment!
      It's an XC/enduro run, with more ups-and-downs than Tinder; certainly a more difficult run, even if I ignore its Black sections.

      Within 50 m or so of its entrance, it lands you on an access road, with no signage! I tried right, which quickly ends at an intersection which seems to be with the same Access road which you started on (ie from the hairpin turn near Pseudo I's entrance/shelter). I then tried left, which proved to be correct. Soon, a sign -- carved into wood, hidden in the bush, on your left -- points to "Fred". Right near the crest of the climb, the entrance+sign is on your right.

      Fred's a XC/enduro run, with a few Blue & Black sections thrown in. Lots of walking, in my failed attempt at a pre-ride. I did not manage the Blues because the twists/turns/ups/down reduce your speed so much that, when you encounter a Blue section, you don't have sufficient speed for clearing it. One Black section (which is a huge, 4 m, near-vertical, rock-face, best described as an "XL" feature) can be ridden
      around, but the steep, dry-dirt + massive roots section cannot; I had to _try_
      to hike down it!

      Fred's only for XC, and anyone seeking the thrill/challenge/glory of the Go Pro-bait Black sections.

      OTOH, it's a nice area, and not as far as my low expectations made me think it to be.
