    What's up with the 12th St. jumps in Ogden?

    I just found them....with the help of Google Earth. Anyway, they seem good to go. There's an 8-pack that seems like it hasn't been hit in a bit, but they're all good. Does anyone know if these jumps get hit up much? And if not, why the hell not? They look pretty fun. Who's land is it? Are the jumps legit? That area has some potential for sure.

    Wow. Nice find. I have no idea how the jumps are. Ask Jeremy at ogdmfg - he probably knows as he lives right there near the jumps...

    You post pics and coordinates for everyone to see before knowing the particulars. I would advise removing at least the coodinates. Loose lips sink ships.

    Yah, maybe.....but as it turns out (according to the few random kids I've talked to), it's all good. Apparently, nobody is into them though. They definitely went off last spring, but there hasn't been anyone else there since I found them a week ago. That is, except for some paint-ballers. Damn, they make a mess! Anyway, the jumps (at least the 7-pack) are good to go. Day 1 I brought my big-bike and only made the first 5. Day 2 (today) I brought my Vagrant and cleaned the line. It's sort of tricky, but I'm sort of rusty. I decided they are the perfect size. They are pretty scary...until you jump them. I've been hitting them by myself, but I'd rather not. Wear are all the dirt jumpers in Ogden? I bet someone has a fat backyard that's going off around here.

    Most people dont care if they blow up the spot if they didnt build it. Where I come from it is bad etiquette to make trails public knowledge. Everyone knows how to make them better and it will be just a matter of time before some idiot sees this thread shows up there and thinks the jumps would be better if the lips were just 6 inches shorter. But then again, I dont come from Ogden.

    So what are you doing in the Utah forum and why do you care? And why are you presuming so much from afar? Maybe someone will read this and will start to ride this abandoned area, make the lips better, give the area some love, give Powderho someone to ride with. Who the hell knows. If you were from Ogden and have ridden there before, I could see your point. But I guess someone has to be the internet police. That's fun!

    Yup, that was me. I flatted and had to get out of there. There must be a bunch of thorns up there. No worries, I just need some slime. Looks like it's time to DIG!

    Yes sir. This rain should make for some good digging. Let me know when you are headed out there.

    I'm pretty new to DJ's but I'm excited to have some decent ones around so I can learn. I ride a Bottlerocket but I just picked up a DMR sidekick frame that I'm in the process of building now.
