Cranks is a newer trail that is accessed off Doyle road. Shortly after coming in off Doyle road you will need to look for a fork to the left. Cranks is a great XC climb that will leave your lungs burning. Cranks ends up T-ing into Corduroy, which if followed (to the left) will take you all the way across the bottom of the mountain to Saunders (the main FSR). To access Cranks from the Saunders side follow Corduroy to the East (past the tower trail). This section of trail has fresh work on it too, including a re-route by the dinosaur head and a handful of new bridges.

       I like this trail, but man does it hurt going up. If you want just a quick power climb and back down, do cranks to corral.

       Mucky, wet, tons of organics. In the rain you'll practically end up doing twice the distance on Cranks because you'll be spinning out so much. Save it for summer.
