    Crappy pumptrack dirt needs help

    Our not so secret little track is primarily dark clay based soil. It breaks in to powder and gravel with the slightest neglect. It is sticky when it is wet and crazes when too dry. It gets too many laps from the local kids who do not water before every session.
    We have a running creek as a water source and I once read somewhere that creek silt will fill in cracks and pack up like stone. Is this true?

    I could wheelbarrow in some top soil. It would be a huge job but I am at the point of trying desperate measures.
    What is the soil compound for durable blue groove surface?
    I am getting tired of 45 minutes of maintenance each time I roll out to the track.
    TIA,
    G.

    I've had the same problem with most all the pump tracks I've built or worked on in our area (PH/WC). At least that one is near the creek. If you're getting desperate, msg me, I might be able to help out.
    Thanks,
