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.
