Sadly this trail was desroyed by the okanagan mountian park fire. this trail was only a part of a awsome network of trails. It will be a very long time for the area to get back to it's original glory. However I am told that this area can still be rode, but the danger to any rider is high and can be un seen.

Probably the first of the 'technical' trails in the Kelowna area. Great drop in's, rock wedges, tight corners and a great bridge crossing finish. A classic Kelowna ride. Nothing too death defying, but clean this one before trying the ones suggested below.

Customer Service

Do the Hillbilly (see review) and connect up with Bullwinkle.

A fun trail, some good drops, ramps, and bridges. It's a little easier than I thought, but it's still very technical. I love the interesting bridge ending.

crawford mountain rips these local riders can build.the only thing they dont know how to do is put signs up.bullwinkle is not that technical but it has its moments, there is one section of rock where you come down an 8 foot ramp and you have to turn sharp for a real technical rideable drop section.the end section that all the reviews talk about should be ripped apart build it skinny and it would rock 2 feet wide is barely a challenge-but it is easy too access and to learn on. a great technical trail too start out on!

Great trail but it is not nearly that hard or death defying. I agree the end bridges should be built skinnier

Like I said we rode this trail with Darryl from Vancouver because we had no idea where we were going. My fiance, who rides a steel hartail with 80mm of travel up front loved this trail, but Darryl and I found it just pathetic! Come on guys. Get with the program. We have more extreme trails than that here in Ontario. I should know - I built some of them. I'm sorry to flame this trail so bad, but it turned our 3-day stay plan for Kelowna into a mad sprint to Nelson, where we were happy to stay the extra time that we made up by splitting from Kelowna.

I must say, though, the spiral thing at the end is a very creative and fun way to use your terrain. But don't get roadtrippers like myself all pumped about riding in Kelowna by calling it "extreme".

I liked very much some of the mx jumps and I especially enjoyed Sissie, the jump over the ATC trail.

Hell I don't know we hooked up with Darryl from Vancouver there he had a map.

Crawford is a neat place but you have to look for the good trails. Some of the drops are ok but lets face it the place is kind of boring and it is quite the climb to get up to it. I am a 13 year old girl and I find most of the stuff there easy and I ride a hardtail!!

Customer Service

Do not really know it is really hard to find.

I dont even know what the hell bullwinkel is !

i recomend little bones! it is awsome! and on the way there is a car jump which is ok. little bones has enough stuff to work up to but enough stuff to ride so that you arn't pushin your bike the whold time. Wooly's revenge is an ok beginer rout but can get real boaring.

it's a great beginner freeride trail. the end is pretty cool but really easy, some people want to make it a lot skinnier but that would defeat the purpose of it being there, it's for beginner freeriders.

Customer Service
