After 1 km ride, you arrive at the trail head and start to pull Brompton to the ridge for another 1 km up there.
Upon arrival at Asakawa pass, please proceed to Mont Éventail (Ogiyama).
The trail is not that hilly. You can partly ride on Brompton.
From the peak Mt. Fuji was wonderful.
Then start a comfortable downhill on the ridge trail. You can go this single track covered by a lot of autumn leaves.
Watch ahead! There are sometimes tree roots and fallen trees on the trail.
I supposed that the trail was best ever for me and Brompton. Slopes were moderate and there were few stones and rocks on the track.
Even autumn tints pleased my eyes on the way.
I took a short rest at the view point on the way downhill.
After the view point the trail increases the gradient of a slope.
It looks a straight descent in a green tunnel!
Arriving in Inume Village and exit the trail.
Inume is famous for one of Hokusai's masterpieces "Fuji from Inume Pass."
Mt. Fuji from Inume Pass, one of the 36 views of Mt. Fuji by Hokusai Katsushika.
