Named after the tin mining pioneer Krushka brothers, Krushka's is one of the longest and most iconic trails in the network. Equal mix of climbing and descending. Takes riders up onto the high granite ridgetops overlooking Derby, via unique slab rock climbing sections, before spitting them onto a killer bermed descent. Takes in De La Vue and Big Mama.
