    Where I ride I never see a trail boss or even other riders. The last track got leveled recently.But there are some new lips at the cliff edge. There is a lower section that the dozers can't get to. There's a triple set of doubles ending with a tabletop. I'm building a big tabletop nearby. One young kid is riding it so that makes me the Trailboss. Wish I had some diggers. It's hard work. I doubt if many other 62 yr olds are doing what I do.I love hitting the jumps and I'm getting better and more confident. No one to ride with because my few friends that ride are XC WWeenies. The solitude is good.Like being the only one out when the waves are good. The info in this forum is great.

    If you go there, offer help. If no one is around or they don't need it, ride. If you jack something up, fix it. As far as building new, go for it, f' permission. Just don't add new to the existing trail w/o consulting someone there first, and sure as hell DO NOT remove stuff that's been there longer than you . You litter, we ban you. Questions?

    Imo, I ride w/ an entrenching tool on my camel back so it's obvious I bring help with. If some clown came up to me and gave me lip and that "trail boss" crap it'd just be the bird and keep riding/maintaining.

    Sweet thread. I guess I was once a trailboss back in my younger dirt jumping days! I grew up on an Air force base and me and my buddies had all sorts of trails in the woods.

    I started a trail about 5-7 yrs ago with a couple of mates, we only dig every so often over the yrs many kids/teens have come to ride our spot. My mates have moved interstate & I've taken on sole responsibility for up keep & building new jumps. The kids that have come to ride have also brought shovels with them to dig i don't mind one bit as long as they don't try & knock the jump size down to suit their skill level, heck I went out of my way to build some smaller easier stuff to cater for the little kids/wimpy teens/adults lol. I'm always getting thanks from others most say I'm a legend & vice versa I give thanks to those who come dig/ ride.
    if I find that the stuff the kids have built isn't quite right I let them know that they're doing a good job but however, here's some pointers in how to build it properly usually followed by a physical demonstration on how to do it.

    Respect! Just passed 40 and seriously hope I'm still able to ride and hit jumps at 62.
