Is there a trail on Fromme that ...?

Is there a trail, other than lower Skull and L.Ladies, that takes you from the B.P. to Mtn Hwy & Mcnair or the street below.

Trail between Quarry Court trail and Lower Skull?

And, what's the trail to the left about a third the way up the road after the 1st switchback? It starts with a nice drop right beside a big splintered tree? Where does it go? Any good? Name?

bobsled and err "slippery canoe" are two different trails
bobsled starts a little down from that dirt jump like thing
the trail we are talking about is further down that bobsled. it has a drop at the beginning, and a big tree just split right near the enterance.

no blah: its not espresso, and espresso doesnt suck

The trails west of lower ladies will spit you out on Braemar or Dempsey. Digger scouted out an option between Quarry Court and Lower ladies but apparently its pretty steep in there.

There are three trails between the 1st and 2nd SB, the first one goes straight down with a few drops that are hucks at speed, you come out just before the 1st SB. The second trail started out as a hiking/XC trail until someone built jumps on it. We've called it the jump trail since then, I guess its also called slippery canoe. This trail comes out at the water tower. The third trail is a old trail called bobsled that was terribly eroded until someone went in and built burms and a few hucks. It comes out just above where Baden Powel come out on the road.

If you can't get to Espresso in less than 30 minutes from the yellow gate you need to seriously evaluate your fitness level and decide if you want to be a health burden to society when you grow up.
