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.

      From looking at the really rocky sections I thought they would be really bumpy but, if you go at speed they are actually quite smooth

      One of the best trails on fromme. Steep rock switchbacks and at the end, there is a fun wooden ladder part.

      Did this my first day mountain biking! Great track very fun! If you take it slow enough anyone can do it! I did walk one section but other than that was a blast!

      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.
