Impressive, wish we had more cedars here on the east coast, the cedars we have here a few and far between and pretty sure very different from the western reds out there

I have a little less than an acre that is just growing grass right now and would like to build some jumps and some trail features. Right now am thinking a jump line in one direction and a tech line returning. My issue is that the land is very nearly flat. I've already built a pump track (riding it is fun, but seems a lot more like work...).

Thoughts on how to go about this? Right now I'm thinking that I could build a platform with a roll in (6' or so) then build jumps from wood with dirt landers. Seem legit? I imagine that the height of the roll in is proportional to the size of the jumps, I am hoping to build jumps that are 4-5' tall with gaps less than 15'.

Sketch (that I don't have with me now) has a roll in then a set up/speed bump leading to a succession of 3 wood jumps with dirt landers. Then a tech line heading back. For reference here's a photo of the space, in the intended direction of the jumps (it is ever so slightly downhill this way:

You are on the right track. I have my spot on flat it to be totally honest sucks.

You are right with the downramp idea its the only way to gain speed.

One fairly cheap quick downramp is scaffold, especially if you dont own building tools.

Anyways good luck and be sure to post pictures!



Josip- how tall is your roll in? Also post some pics of the new jumps

It's 6 m tall. The jumps are still not done tho Cry just didn't have the time this year to really put into them and it took forever to even get started on the roll in. It's going to be pretty nice tho, need to get a digger in for one more session mostly for the first landing.

I hear ya, I didn’t get to my spot at all this summer- I have a job that takes way too much of my free time away

yup, the same with me, but also we had a lot of rain in the summer so even when i had some time i could not cement the foundations for the roll in. I didn't feel like shaping jumps without having the roll in, and could not build the roll in because of the water so it was not a really productive year. But if anything goes closely as planned this should be done for the next season.

Thanks for the feedback gentlemen. Cheers and I'll post some picuters once I can get this rolling. @thepureface: Looks like you have a pretty rad set up going based on your pics!

Its public! Part of the new 66 Trail system, but this is on the north side of the highway behind the facebook data centers. Access is from Ochoco Viewpoint State Park. This is an intermediate level skills park, and Im about to start construction on an advanced level park in the next few weeks in the same spot.
