    Three Bottles technical trail build-three-bottles-trail.-fina-day-work-002.jpgThree Bottles technical trail build-three-bottles-trail.-fina-day-work-003.jpgThree Bottles technical trail build-three-bottles-trail.-fina-day-work-007.jpgThree Bottles technical trail build-three-bottles-trail.-fina-day-work-005.jpgThree Bottles Advanced Trail is a done deal! With another good turnout today we actually finished up around noon. The last line to go in is a double diamond line with a drop into a big roller and into a jump off a boulder right into a big burm. It is so sweet. Probably one of my favorite lines.
    First and foremost I have to give a big thanks to our Forest District and especially Kerry Wood for sticking their neck out and backing us on this project. Without them, there would be no Three Bottles Advanced Trail. And to everyone that came out to help with the build. We had such great support and turnout on build days. THANK YOU!
    From what I understand there are only a couple other FS Districts in the country that have done anything like this. And now some others are showing interest. We have a special little gem here in the East Mtns. LOTS of options to try on Three Bottles Trail. So go and HIT THAT $HIT!

    A lot of great features out there. Thanks to all, and especially Kerry and Steve, for putting in the time. Many, many line options out there. Sooo much good rock and potential in that area. Wonder if there are any bigger steep rollers?

    I was thinking something with a variety of sizes; a place where riders could go to learn to jump. I was at a place in Salt Lake that had just that. Maybe 6-8 jumps in a row spaced well; Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear sized. These gave more height than length but were about 7', 5' and 3' tall respectively. I think some step ups; 6-10 feet maybe and some gap jumps (with tabletop option).

    A jump line would fit in Otero Canyon (ala' Bobsled in SLC) but certainly change the aesthetics; not sure how this works with the Forest Service and other users. The jump playground would have to be somewhere else; maybe Mars Court area. The playground only needs 200' in length and not a ton of vertical.

    There is a plan in the works for a 3B extension that would keep riders off the Forest Road (106 I think) that extension is meant to be built exactly how you describe.

    Its fun up there, mostly. The jumps are always in a state of "could use a little work", but are good to go. Might want to sweep out the transitions, they accumulate a lot of sand between sessions.

    I think a flow trail with more dense features similar to the otero trail would be cool. I don't think we need a jump park up there, we have indian school and alameda. Keep it with the 3B theme but more jumps, table tops, and berms.

    I'd rather not see a "jump park", but a line of progressive hits, from small to larger would be keen. I'm thinking more step-downs and step-ups, some straight on, some hipped or on an angle - not the tombstone type DJ park double at Alameda.

    Otero itself is pretty much a flow trial on the way down

    No, theres not a jump park like Alameda planned. More along the line of what you are talking about Jerry. The extention looses all the rock pretty much but has a good slope. I am pretty sure that it will run all the way down to the meadow where gnasty meets blue ribbon. Thats a pretty nice long run down. Got to see what the mtn will give us.

    It's going to take more time to build than phase one did I think. I kind of doubt that it will start next year. I think Kerry has a few other projects to do that were put off for 3-B. The next trail days in Sept will be on the Dead Man connector. The big thing is that the 3-B extension is approved. Just got to wait our turn again.

    we could focus on this side of the mountain... it would be cool to get the advanced area in SFH some more attention.....

    * I know the spot isnt the best but it is already set aside and designated as a "special" area so it would be the best spot to start..

    I would like to be able to have wooden drops leading into some of the lines and also have some good dirt trucked in... but even with out those 2 things a lot of progress could be made

    something like this

    I know. You thought this thread was done. Got some good news today. The Three Bottles trail extension in a GO for next year! This will extend 3-B on down and connect to Blue Ribbon at the meadow where Gnasty takes off. Can't wait till next year. Until then I'll see you on the trail.

    Literally the closest thing to a complaint I has is that more people will ride Gnasty... and that's still not a bad thing.

    Post up a schedule, I'll see how many build days I can make.
