    Machine Built Trail Pics

    We are making some real headway on our trail project with our SK650 now that things are drying out. . Just for grins and to help keep the stoke a-stoked, I was wondering if any of you would mind sharing some photos of your finished machine built trail. Just so I can better look forward to our finished results. I'll share ours as we go, too. Thanks!

    This thread has some nice pics of the whole process. Really nice work considering the guy on the machine isn't a MTB trail builder.

    These pics are from a new jump trail that we built up north here in Bellingham. I snagged a few pics from EB's better half and a few were taken by me.

    .....and yes there is very large culvert at the bottom of that last berm. Not to sure this corner would work in most places. Here in the Pacific Northwest we live on a giant sponge, the long corner has the potential to carry a lot of water on a heavy downpour, but when dispersed into the organic layer... after settling in a cleanout before the culvert... it looses a lot of its erosive force......or so that is how I justified it when I built it.

    Had the opportunity to meet Zachi at the CA Trails and Greenways Conference this week. Interesting guy, and what a vision and passion for trails, what he has done with the Forest Trails Alliance.

    I forgot to state the Forest Trails Alliance won the Program Award at the conference for the Forest City Project.

    I should mention that I have no affiliation - just appreciation, for the group
    I had that vid bookmarked from a thread here a while ago by one of the guys responsible.
