:thinking: That's what I will name it, if it ever gets completed.

The pic may not show it very well, but this is about a 5-6ft ledge drop off/jump.
Image
This from the top looking down.
Image
Building a bermed turn at the bottom of the drop off.
Image
Big ass rock that was sticking out at the end of the berm.
Image
Not any more.
Image
Was gonna build a wooden bridge, but decided it would take too much effort. Just gonna pile more logs in there a build a log ride.
Image
These are sections I added today.
Image
Image
Bar check feature.

Very nice. Get some footage once it is completed.

i went back to the first pic and i can see it better now. i could roll or hop it, but i certainly wouldnt huck it. too old for that shit...well, too unskilled to be attempting it at my age anyhow. dont have anything at all like that around here because most every trail is on public land, and the parks are awfully uptight about technical stuff. the one private trail in the area, vultures knob, has a downhill line, but its fairly tame even by cross country riders standards. nothing that big to jump off.

The drop off was the first feature I built into the trail. After it was completed I realized it would make the trail one way only. I guess an alternative will become necessary at some point. :roll:

one way isn't necessarily a bad thing. seems like it would make things safer.

Love bar check features. Out here in the Redwoods we call it "threading the needle"

There's a group of riders who do a weekly ride, looping all the trails together. They alternate direction, clockwise and counter-clockwise, every month. They are the self appointed caretakers of these trails. Having the trail ridable in both directions would help gain their approval of my "unathorized" addition. ;)

I opened this trail back in May 2014, and then it got hit by Tropical Storm Iselle in August. After a month of cutting fallen trees, we have our trails back. This is a feature I built using a couple of those down trees.

We call them tree gates around here. And I can't stand 'em.

I want to ride all of that. When I get this settlement stuff out of the way, I am probably going to either ride cross country or go on a mountain bike tour. But in reality, probably not gonna do anything.
