    Build a trail

    Do it damnit! Lol no in all seriousness, I'm trying to find somewhere to build a nice, long all DH trail for me and maybe a few buddies to ride on.

    Thinking of putting in:

    [1] Lots of woodwork, including large banked turns, elevated banked turns(???), some teatertoters, some skinnies (between 2 nd 6 inches wide)

    [2] Some larger berms

    [3] A set of real hard but flowey turns

    [4] A set of about 4 long jumps

    [5] I'd like to put in atleast one 5 foot to flat drop

    and then theres all those little things that come up and just are like "oh, well why not do this?"

    Currently, I'm looking for someone to provide the space I'll need.

    are you serious???? first off the liability if you fall

    go find a mountain with an easy access road.......then look for natural stuff swinging back and forth about a 1/4 to 1/2 mile wide.........next make sure your line when you stop can begin rolling down very easy......do a couple of test routes without digging a thing (except the parts you know 4sure you will use.......then start building.......plan on taking 2 years to fully build it.....6 months to a year to get your route and then another 6 months to a year to make it with all the improvements after that you will still will want to make improvements ......when you build also make it harder then you can ride.....because you will get better fast

    ...yea probly a better idea. Problem is, all the land out here is either park or loggign land, neither of witch is legal, and I'm not crazy about what'd happen if I spent a year building my dream trail and then one day pull up and find a) my lifes work torn and cut apart, b) the property owner with a shotgun, or c) some crazy pot smokin dirty hippie with a cicle

    ahem......

    go to:

    www.brmba.org

    read about our agreement with the forest service. learn it backwards & forwards.

    then call your local forest service recreation office & build a legal trail
