    I've built this for my backyard trail. Pretty simple, short, and sweet.

    A portable in 8' sections. I take it to the middle school bike club every once in a while for skills building.

    This is one called Hydra, which offers multiple lines for varying skill levels.

    This is a part of Hydra. This line forces you to hop to the left, ride forward a pedal stroke or two, hop to the right, and then over a small boulder, though I have seen someone ride over the stop at the end, lifting his front and back wheels.

    About 400+ feet of linked trees ripped in half that wind thru a wet area in a local network. Fittingly named Trouble.
