After the climb up out of Froom Creek Canyon, your choice going up the very steep and marble laden Oceanview Fireroad climb or a cool singletrack known as the Wednesday trail. Wednesday leads you uphill at a nice 5% grade via a series of chunky and toothy switchbacks that include the unique use of 4 "Flying Switchbacks" which are wooden deck features with long ramps put in place where traditional dug in switchbacks were not an option due to the steep topography. At the top, you will reconnect with the Oceanview Fireroad for a short distance that will take you to your next set of options, including a directional kiosk about 75 yards up the road.

 This trail is a great combination of sections that are greatly moderate with a few short sections that are easy to walk as needed. Do this trail, walk were you need to and admire the construction thought and effort in this great trail.
