Trail connects a bunch of trails on lower Fromme mountain, providing access to/from King of the Shore, Middle Griffin, Upper Griffin, Roadside Attraction, Parking Lot, Natural High and the Mountain Hwy road. It virtually has no climb (maybe 1-3 meters) with a few fun small ladder bridges.

Access Info

After climbing King of the Shore or Middle Griffin, you will end up on the connector. If going downhill, Upper Griffin ends at the connector where you can head down Middle Griffin or hang a right to head towards King of Shore, Natural High or finish at parking lot. Roadside Attraction ends at the connector as well where you can turn left or right.
