The name Crooked Stick is certainly evident in its twisty sections, however, this trail still has a very nice flow. Make sure to stay on the outside if you want to ride the whole thing. In this counter-clockwise direction, there are two places where you have to stay to the right to avoid taking an early exit. The trail is well-marked though, so just take note of the map and pay attention to the signs. There aren't really any difficult climbs on Crooked Stick except for Graveyard Hill which is short and steep.
