Crinkum Crankum starts with a series of tight technical switch backs, then descends a number of steep and often slippery ramps to drop onto a T intersection that has double black left variant, and single black right, but joins again a short while later. If you go right, there's a sneaky left you have to take a short way along avoid being taken back to the road.
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.
More Mt Fromme mountain biking trails can be found here.
At the top of Mountain Hwy in North Vancouver, park south of the orange locals only parking signs. Ride up to the end of the road and enter the park throught the first gate.

CommentDue to a major creek washout at the top of the first corner of Mountain Hwy in late 2006, this trail though still accessible, is closed. Unstable trees on the undercut steep loose river banks make it very dangerous to cross the creek at the bottom of the trail, where it runs into Cedar Trail. No doubt the NSMBA and the local authorities are working out a remedy.
