Adventure Description

Fromme Mountain is one of the birthplaces of freeride mountain biking in Canada. Some of the trails here were established over 20 years ago, and others have been built and upgraded recently by the North Shore Mountain Bike Association and the District of North Vancouver. Most trails are now maintained through the Trail Adoption Program, whereby companies or organizations adopt a trail and are responsible for maintenance and upkeep.

From the drop-off point, climb the gravel fire road 1.25 kilometers to the posted trailhead Bobsled. This is one of Fromme's newest and most frequented trails. A great warm up run, Bobsled is a smooth, flowy, trail that zigzags back and forth down the hill. Just under 900 meters from top to bottom, Bobsled has some great wooden features and large banked corners that will have you grinning ear to ear by the time you reach the end.

Climb back up the fire road just over 1 kilometer to the Floppy Bunny Trailhead that you passed on the first climb. This is another Fromme classic that is rated blue/black. It offers great flow and new wooden features, all of which have a roll-a-round option.

Just up the hill from the end of Floppy Bunny is the entrance to Cedar Tree Trail and Griffen. Follow the wide gravel trail in about 15 meters and drop into the third trailhead on the right. Upper Griffen is a blue trail that is windy and less steep than the other trails, but it is still a bit gnarly and bumpy. Follow the trail for half a kilometer and take your first obvious right after the wooden bridge to King of the Shore straight back to your starting point at the parking area. Alternately, continue down middle and lower Griffen, which will bring you out to the Baden Powell Trail and McNair Drive. At the road, go right to Mountain Highway and make another right to return to the parking area.

Once you've conquered this loop you'll be confident and ready to climb up to the trails at the next level.
