    Map of locations of dirt jump parks?

    Is there such a thing? A dirt jump park index?

    I'd love to be able to find locations of official dirt jump parks so when I'm on the road I can plan my trips accordingly.

    I read posts here from time to time with links to vids of some great looking legal public dirt jumps, like the duthie jumps near Seattle.

    Has anyone put a map like this together?

    It's done by the same people who did the map of the whole forest.

    Thank you for trying to help me with my query. Unfortunately I have not been able to find anything produced by the forest service that matches the description of what I am looking for. If you have a link I would appreciate it very much.

    You have my apologies if you were not referencing the forest service in your post.

    Blades DJ PARK

    It's on private land. I'll have to take you there. Meet at the mormon church parking lot sometime during the week. If you think I'm BSing call me on it. I rode there today

    I was going to make fun of you, but then you kept it classy so I wont. Good luck in your search, most DJ's are private, but you can probably find some people willing to let you ride them. I recommend checking out ridemonkey, you might have some luck there. I don't think anybody wants their private DJ's on a map though.

    Yea, I wasn't expecting there to be a map of ay private DJ parks, but there are some public parks around the rocky mountain region, it is those that I am looking for information on. In my original post I specified "official dirt jump parks" but I should have used the words "public dirt jump parks" to avoid any confusion.

    There used to be a website called frappr that allowed anybody to plot points on it with information about the point they plotted, but the frappr website is no longer working. I was hoping that there was a similar map for DJ parks, Like Duthie outside of Seattle which is a public park, or the park in Ogden Utah, or Teton pass, etc... I haven't had any luck finding a user friendly map which anyone can plot points on, but if I do I will post back here.

    California:
    Elk Grove, free (outside sacramento)

    Colorado:
    Durango, free (southwest colorado)

    Washington:
    Duthie, free (outside seattle)

    But there are so many towns that don't have public bike parks so I want to compile a list of those that do so I can plan my road trips around those cities if I want to.

    If you ever go to Northstar, just hike up on the left side of the gondola and they have a jump park that you can access for free. all day long, you just gotta hike it.
