    its in the DFW area. There is also a place in Ft worth, little city park that has several lines, from beginner to way better than me, gaps of about 10-12 ft.

    yeah, that dirt/log quarter is nice! looks like you have some prime dirt there, but take a bail, and I bet a handlebar would chunk it... maybe add in some concrete to solidify? is that private property? I'm jealous, I just want to buy some land that I can build my ass off on... instead of poaching and worrying about all of my work... paranoia sucks.
    keep up the digging!

    some sock cuckers trashed the trails this weekend... ..ripped 1/2 the dirt off the
    quarter..wrecked all the lips....sucks that these trails are in such a popular area...
    the dirt is perfect for packing right now though.....when I think about it everything
    they wrecked needed to be redone anyway.... hmmmm

    The lines are not insane, and are a blast. The plan is to do a street ride in The Colony today, a little city southeast of Denton, but we will be at the trails Sunday morning.

    I the fastest way for me to get to the trails have been to take 380 to Locust. Go North on Locust, until you see the baseball complex on the left side of the rode. Park in the complex, and then hop on your bike and cross the street. Ride north to the bike path and take a right, and stay on the path after you pass the bridge, you will see a few openings into the woods, take the third entrance, and you will find yourself on the trail.

    We will be there Sunday in the AM, but there are people in and out of there all the time.

    Post up if you make it out.

    I live down around Burleson in the town of Cleburne so Denton is a good hour or so away for me. Maybe I'll be able to get my friend to take me when he gets home. What days do you guys usually ride?

    Just post up or PM me if your headed out there.

    Hot Summer!!

    well things are way crumbly out there.....which makes it a little easier to use a pick for breaking up dirt....lighter to move as well....5ft spine is about to go up.....I need to hire a bully to take out the vandals that keep knocking the dirt off the quarter

    I can't believe this thread is still alive. But alas, I've been hitting these up for about a month now and have become seriously addicted to dirt jumping. I still suck, but I'm doing the "steep line" now (4 footers, 8-9 foot gaps) and hope to be hitting up the "long wedge line" before too long. Very nice trails indeed - if you happen to be in the area, hit them up for sure.

    Just the opposite here in H-town. We work our azzes off to get things in shape and then it rains and ruins all of our hard work. Then you have to wait several days for it to dry out some and repeat all the work. Then more rain. This cycle has been going on for over month now. Grrrrrrrr Hoping and praying to get out to the secret spot Saturday to actually ride.

    It don't ever rain here no more.

    We have one spot that has water on the property and they stay in decent shape, there are a half dozen other spots around town with big jumps but everything is crumbling and no real good way to fix'm.

    man, I travel to the DFW area now and again for work...looks like I need to bring my bike. 9th street in austin is sick, but a lot of those lips are way too steep for 26" wheels...not to mention the jumps are f-king HUGE. i like the trannies you guys built, looks pretty ideal.

    huh? Who the hell am I hating on? And have you ever even been to austin? I also didn't realize you had secret surveillance video of me riding to come to the conclusion that I have "no skill"...

    It's a pretty commonly known fact that you can ride steeper trannies on a 20" than a 26"...look at BMX riders using concrete traffic barricades as quarter pipes. Those jumps are built for BMX bikes...and 20" riders are the only people I have ever seen at 9th street doing the really huge, steep sh!t.

    for the record, you mentioned nothing about tight trannys. you plainly stated what i quoted. i've built dirt jumps for over 20 years, and have heard the numerous complaints about steep lips being a "bmx" thing and have heard all the excuses...

    Fair enough...by steep lip i meant ridiculously steep transition on the jumps. I could have clarified better, but you don't have to jump down my throat about it. Mostly because

    denton texas bmx trails

    As of July 27, 2010, these trails are still in an somewhat-ridable state... . I was just out there today and I think that with a few days of work, they'll be good to go again. If anyone has the courage to try to rebuild these with me, let me know. I would really like to have some trails to ride here in denton. I'm going to get some pictures later today to post on here.

    Dude talk to Casey Bowman on facebook... I think he's up in Denton. He's a stupid good bmx'er (almost Dew Tour) and he's building in your area... looks like he's digging solo, too. I bet he'd welcome some help throwing dirt.

    In that first pic http://forums.mtbr.com/attachment.ph...8&d=1280277451 I'm noticing the hole on the left. Looks like someone was trying to dig drainage for the pit. Just a friendly suggestion: either that drainage pit should have been off to the right where it's not creating a crater in an otherwise rideable area . . . or expand and blend/transition that hole so you can ride through it, or even make it a future line.
    it's good to think strategically about where to get dirt from, so that the end result is a work of architecture that actually looks good, rather than a moonscape with one rideable jump line.

    also, sent u a PM

    these pits were feeble attempts to ward off ATVs years ago...I'm sure the new guy will agree with how much damage the ATVs have done in that regard.

    yeah there were tons of ruts and a lot of the ramps were little more than hills because of it. we will definitely have to figure out a good way to prevent that from happening again.

    That place still looks like it would be fun to dig/ride - probably not too much work to make it a decent set again. I haven't jumped for a couple of years either ... I thought they were going to tear that area out and build more apartments?

    Im in Euless, so ether would be fine.

    Looking for dirt or street riders to get photos to add to my site, anyone interested can email me, I will pass along any photos I take to use for social media, just make sure to cite the photographer.

    Normally weekends work best.

    These jumps are in Denton? Where at? And are they suitable to have an FR bike hit them, or just DJ/BMX bikes?

    They could be done on an FR bike but it would be a heck of a pedal. No roll in yet.

    If I may make a friendly suggestion: Be strategic about where you get your dirt. Start a source pit away from the trail that is not very visible and use a wheelbarrow to move dirt. When you dig out of it, dig at an even depth all the way across, so it looks tidy and is not an ankle-twisting hazard. Cover up the source pit with logs, branches etc when not using.

    This is way better than digging from right next to the jump like a lot of people do. It creates a moon crater appearance and is potentially a hazard for someone riding around the jump. Authorities, hikers etc tend to be much more upset about unsightly holes than they are about mysterious "mounds."

    Also, I know this is an ongoing debate in the bmx and mtb-DJ scenes, but building large filled-in tables or rollable/case-able doubles can be better for a spot for a number of reasons:

    1. Tables are way harder to knock down or mess with. Also, because less experienced riders are more able to ride them, they are less likely to mess with them.

    2. A lot more riders of your skill level will come out and help; on the flip side if you're only trying to attract hardcore riders they will tend to only help if they can make your doubles taller, steeper etc. So you will constantly have people trying to tweak your doubles--either to make them easier or to make them harder.

    3. You (and everyone else) will be more comfortable learning tricks and getting more height and distance. So, progression will increase. Not only that, but many riders will be more comfortable hitting a much larger jump when it is filled in or has a big case pad. (I can give you lots of examples of people hitting 10-16 foot tables that they never hit if they were true gaps).

    4. The larger cycling community--rec mtb xc'ers etc.--will be much more likely to be on your side (even if they don't actually ride the jumps) if you ever have a tear-down threat, or especially if you are in an area where you are supposed to be getting permission. Most parks have trail stewards for mtb trail systems. Tables, even if they are bigger (longer and taller) look less dangerous than smaller gap doubles (even if they're not).

    5. Even though it takes more dirt to fill in jump as a table or rollable double (camel-back), once you've done it, it's done, and the jump will last way longer for the reasons stated above. If there are lots of fallen trees around, and you're allowed to use a saw, you can fill in the gap pretty fast.

    My 2 cents (from experience). Although, don't get me wrong, I totally respect lots of trails and trail builders who do amazing spots with gap jumps. Just throwing out there the pluses for having a main line of tables/rollable doubles. ; )

    Good luck !

    I would agree on the table, step up, step down type jumps... you will get more community support and less hassle from the "man' check out our spot https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cotta...96908407004866

    good luck!
