Description

The trail begins at the access road to the lower frick parking lot, right below entrance to Braddock trail fire road and terminates on to the Braddock Trail.

Be cautious going over the bridge as it can be slippery when wet, and there is a sharp turn immediately afterwards. The trail is bermed on the the southern side of the bridge to make the transition into the turn a bit smoother.

Side view of 2nd bridge and 3rd bridge below with wide, steep berm between the two. Both cross the same ravine.

After the s-turn berms, there is a roller and then a double jump before you merge with the main, multi-use trail (see bench in background). Check your speed.

Below the two bridges, the trail becomes more gravelly over exposed red clay, because of frequent city water runoff. Avoid after a storm.

This is the second of 3 bridges, at a somewhat low point in the ravine just past the rock garden. Best to maintain speed to get up the steep roots between the trees on the other side.

There's a few tricky rock gardens and exposed roots on this trail. Best to keep your momentum and not touch the brakes when wet.
