The Downhill, flow, jump, trail.......... is no longer a dream or a figment of our imaginations, it is real.
Thanks to Brad and his awesome Bobcat skills and some dry weather we were able to get the soil moved up the hill and started building jumps and berms. Two or three are built as of today and as soon as we get more soil delivered we'll build more.
Shannon and Patrick did a great job of directing Brad where the jumps were to go.
The soil we have is a really nice clay that looks like it's going to hold very well. Finally a good use for our local clay soils
All jumps will have two lines to allow for progression and to add a bit of different feel. Go fast on one side, go big on the other.
What we need to make this project go faster and easier is:
1. Black HDPE Culvert pipe . We use this to help as fill so we don't have to move as much soil up the hill. 10" Diameter and larger and 3' long and longer.
2. Large Limestone rocks like what you see when new construction is going on. 2' X 2' X 2' and larger.
3. People to help shape the jumps and berms. Much of this is done wit the bobcat but we need finish work.
While the trail is not officially open, and it is not nearly finished, what is there is rideable.
It is located of the Family Trail just south of the long tech offshoot.
Pics to come soon.
