The three sections of Crazy Ivan have little in common with each other beyond joining forces to form this wild and unique route. The top of Crazy Ivan is most frequently accessed by climbing the Tokul 170
Crazy Ivan breaks down into three distinct stages:
Stage One (Upper Crazy Ivan
): Winding singletrack lures you in with the promise of easy to moderate riding. Soon some cross-country antics traverse back and forth across the bluff line for a hearty pedal.
Stage Two (Middle Crazy Ivan
): Check your brakes because Crazy Ivan turns sinister after the pump track when it dives down a steep skid trail. There's abundant sliding and little actual stopping as you descend across a steep and exposed slope composed of sandy soil.
Stage Three (Lower Crazy Ivan
): Make the very brief road climb to the left, then pin it for a fast descent. This final stage ratchets up the fun with a heavy seasoning of roots and jumps of various sizes. Crazy Ivan concludes at Snoqualmie Valley Trail about a quarter mile from the nearest parking area. This stage can also be accessed by following the Tokul 100 - West
road to the end.
