Very fun and flowy trail with lots of tight descending switchbacks, a few short-but-steeper rollovers and some Flowtron-like halfpipe at the end. Solid Blue level, but it's the next step up from Flowtron difficulty-wise, and a good trail to session your steeper downhill switchback riding before moving up to Upper Crazy Ivan.

This trail has 3 sections: Upper, Middle & Lower. The Upper trail starts at the top of the XC Ivan access trail at the top of the powerline road. The Middle section was partly destroyed by logging, so after riding the short Upper section, once you hit the road, ride up the road to your left (East) and take the 2nd road on the right (South) for a short uphill to the Middle section. Look for the start on the left at the end of this road. At the bottom of the Middle section, the Lower section can be found on the other side of the road, uphill to your right about 50 feet. Sadly, the most challenging & steepest part at the start of this lower section didn't survive the logging.

The lower section is fun and goes to the SVT, but a common and more fun routing is to ride just the Upper and Middle sections, then at the end of the Middle section, go up the road to the right all the way back to the top and hit Upper and Lower Ivan back to the SVT.

Note: a Hancock Forest Recreation Pass (see website below) is required to ride the Tokul East and Tokul West trails.

This trail shines when everything else is sloppy. Tight cornering is the main characteristic. There is not a single moment where your tires...

This trail is best kept for those deep winter months. When everything else is a sloppy mess, this trail is at its best. It gets all of is...

This trail is past it's prime. It's rutted and full of loose rocks (marble). I don't think it's been maintained for years. I'd no longer rate...
