Description

Access this trail from one of two junctions with the Grouse Mountain Highway. The trail start is unsigned, though easy to find at the sixth switchback—instead of following the wide gravel road, head straight into the trees and turn immediately right and upward on Peer Gynt.

The trail climbs steadily on rooty footing to the second junction with the Grouse Mountain Highway. Head straight across the gravel road and clamber over the ditch with the help of a short rope hold to continue on the trail.

As the summit of Fromme nears, the trail begins to level out, periodically allowing some bursts of faster running to stretch your legs.

From the summit, this trail can be linked to a variety of alternate descent paths to make it a partial loop, or descend the way you came.
