Very fun and flowy trail with lots of tight descending switchbacks, a few short-but-steeper rollovers and some Flowtron-like halfpipe at the end. Solid Blue level, but it's the next step up from Flowtron difficulty-wise, and a good trail to session your steeper downhill switchback riding before moving up to Upper Crazy Ivan.

This trail has 3 sections: Upper, Middle & Lower. The Upper trail starts at the top of the XC Ivan access trail at the top of the powerline road. The Middle section was partly destroyed by logging, so after riding the short Upper section, once you hit the road, ride up the road to your left (East) and take the 2nd road on the right (South) for a short uphill to the Middle section. Look for the start on the left at the end of this road. At the bottom of the Middle section, the Lower section can be found on the other side of the road, uphill to your right about 50 feet. Sadly, the most challenging & steepest part at the start of this lower section didn't survive the logging.

The lower section is fun and goes to the SVT, but a common and more fun routing is to ride just the Upper and Middle sections, then at the end of the Middle section, go up the road to the right all the way back to the top and hit Upper and Lower Ivan back to the SVT.

Access Info

Note: a Hancock Forest Recreation Pass (see website below) is required to ride the Tokul East and Tokul West trails.

       Description outdated; middle section is complete. Not necessary to take road ride-around described.

      I think Blue-Black a better classification for this trail. The switchbacks in the middle section are sharp, steep, and loose, and the lower section has a large drop off that would definitely qualify as a Black feature with no ride around (walking trail can be seen in woods to left).
