“A rocky, moderately graded trail that follows a creek to the top of Mariposa Trail.”— Chris Fa
Park at the Mariposa Trailhead and take the fork left towards King Trail. Shortly, the trail will fork again; continue left and follow signs for Froom Creek Connector. The trail merges with Froom Creek Trail, continuing right and uphill. Continue up a moderate grade for 1.5 miles, staying straight at any offshoots or forks. Froom Creek Trail officially terminates at a connection with Poppy Connector and most people take Poppy Connector to climb to the top of the ridge to Mariposa Trail.
In the future, runners will have the ability to continue up Froom Creek via a connector between Ocean View Trail and Froom Creek Trail.
