Crinkum Crankum starts with a series of tight technical switch backs, then descends a number of steep and often slippery ramps. Thanks to Ol' Man Pete, there is a right bypass around the ramps. Turn right after the log ride and a quick left before the road will get you into the final descent of Kirkford.

Access Info

This trail is normally done as a continuation of Leopard and Kirkford, though it's start can be accessed from a short joiner trail that comes off Mountain Hwy at the third main switchback corner from the turnaround gate.

       Awesome trail but beware of tight, rocky and sometimes quite steep corners(not very blue votes aside). Still overall sick trail and great for getting better at rocky corners! Most of the other TTFs have a ride around.
