A quick little trail near the bottom of Fromme. The trail features some nice flowing lines, including some reasonable rock faces, a roller-coaster and a big bridge that extends across a small valley. A very fun trail when combined with Upper Crippler or Grannies.

Access Info

From Grannies, make a left turn (East) onto the Baden and the trail is on your right within a very short ride.

The trailhead is fairly obvious and is identifiable by the mostly granite entrance.

Tree down right after the canoe drop. Decent sized hand saw, or small chainsaw would get er done. Other than that, good times!
