I know, I build a jump that wasn't a table top and some loser destroyed the lip and made it into a table top. Its disgusting. After hours and hours and in less than ten minute they can destroy it all. Amazing.

how about actually considering other trail users and not build stuff thats unrideable for lower skilled riders? tables are great for everyone, if your skilled you gap it just the same, if your not your not having a trip to the local hospital when you case the shit out of it. yeah its more work, but not a great deal more as your takeoff/landing doesnt need propping up the same.


if it a private trail ignore all of the above and f*ck those guys.

There were table tops less than 400 meters away.

Alright guys, I recently proposed some trail ideas to our local Parks and Rec. They've got behind it, along with our small community. It's an awesome feeling and we are going fast. Our facebook is growing! All great signs for a small town.

Here is my (and a few volunteers) first try and trail building ever. It took me a while to get the hang of the tools, but we got a rythm going. Here are some pics, and help or comments appricieated! This is a multi use walking/green bike trail.

sustainability in the wet may be an issue, whats your weather like across the year? that type of soil retains a lot of moisture and doesnt compact very well, itll soon tear up if its wet for too long. can you see about funding for some fine stone/hardcore to surface it all with? it would be a lot more durable

Hi there thanks for the feed back. This is my first try and I'm learning as we go. I know it's not perfect.

We got a BIG storm last night and I got eyes on the trail. There was no standing water on the trail so thats good at least This is just a rough cut. I could feel how soft the top layer is which leads me to beleive we idnt get to the mineral soil layer

We plan to go back and recut the top layer again to smooth out the lumps and also make it easier to compact.

continue to put plants on the sides of the trail, it will avoid erosion.

Hey guys. For a long time I did not write news about our bike park. By the end of the year we will receive the status of an official city park. This year all trails were repaired and a contest was held on August 24th. Here is our video, enjoy your viewing. P.S. almost the entire park was built by hand with shovels.
