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.
