    Dirt cracks easily in hot places, so if you have a jump thats exposed to the sun 24/7 or the sand just cracks very easily you put a rug on top after watering it so that it lasts longer.

    aha! so that's what my problem is.

    Pics of my jump. I had 3, but I decided to make the last one a berm, and then I took out the first one becuase I used filler, and the rocks were showing.

    I'm intending to develop the whole area into a 4x park eventually.

    It's still very much a work in progress, i moved the jump and landing further apart today, as i get more confident to do bigger jumps.

    Dang, thats a nice spot! I'd love to have dirt like that near my place! Oh and if u do go bigger and don't want to do all the digging, i suggest you cut some of the deadfall like the tree in the second pic and use it as a filler. Good luck and get some action shots

    Well, I'm going bigger, and I'm doing the digging! :P

    I'm trying to keep these jumps filler free, I had some sets a while ago that had rocks from the river and logs that had washed up in the flood, but they caused me no end of trouble.

    I dug them up, and removed the filler, and spent hours making them the right shape, and I ended up with a much better jump. I'm always adjusting my jumps, and filler gets in the way of my method of reshaping.

    what u guys do about dirtbikes riding ur trails. we put in a few weeks of work building only to be found by a few d-bags on dirtbikes. casing just about every jump, plowing through jumps that havent dried etc. etc. looking for a new spot to rebuild more secluded. no luck thus far. so were thinking of driving nails through boards and burrying them in the jumps...... and building wooden takeoffs, and loosly putting them together so when they hit em, they eat $hit. anyone else have this problem

    Dumps to Jumps

    Here is a partial shot of the Trestle Bike Skills Park in Denver, CO. This location was formerly the storage site for dumpsters, now the play site for jumpsters. It is a 4 acre park built by Denver Parks and Rec with the help of Trestle Bike Park, Winter Park. Original design credit goes to John Cowan. At the top are some wood features and a "kiddie" pumptrack. There are 5 jump lines and a larger pumptrack at the bottom. This pic is the middle of the jump lines (jumps 2 and 3). The park is free and open sun up to sun down.

    Go for a drive! Have a look around, ask people. If you find a mint spot, knock on the nearest door and ask very kindly who owns the land and would they like a lovely set of dirtjumps in their backyard. If you're in town, ask the council, they may have somewhere you could build.

    I live on 16 acres next to a river, so land was not an issue for me.

    Main DJ park in town. Now all I need is a bike to ride this. Also need to clean it up. The weather has been so bad lately that every trail clean up day has been canceled.





    And for the heck of it, the local BMX and really pitiful pump track that I'm currently waiting for the park service to give me the permission to try and fix it up. Fingers crossed and praying they will approve.

    There are some very nice jumps and impressive moves you guys and gals are pulling off...

    Quick question for everyone: Anyone ever ride "The Pits" in Port Washington, NY on Long Island (Behind Thomson Industries building?)....The trails have been eliminated a few years back and replaced by a gated community unfortunately - but I used to ride there about 8-10 years ago...great spot.

    Good use of the grant monies Chance! That is looking really good. Mentioned it at Barnum and one fella is excited for it because he is from your state and is going in a couple weeks. He really hopes that the djs are open when he is there.

    Post Your Dirtjumps!-final-days.jpgPost Your Dirtjumps!-last-day.jpg

    We had a solid build session last night at CGBP. Things are really coming together. Some of the most recent features are still to soft to really test but we hope with this stretch of warm weather over the next few days, everything should firm up and we should be able to open the dirt jumps this Saturday morning. Please stay off them until then. We will be back out on site tonight working on the final pieces! See you then!
