    dirt *jumps*/trails...[ramps are wood or metal or what u would call a skate park].....a website thats good u could find by going to google and typin in tips on building bmx jumps or trails.....that or jst look at other peoples or follow ur instinct....concave is key...u want ur jump curved all the way to the lip and the lip should be almost vertical....u neeed water in order for the dirt to pack to its hardest so ur gonna wanna hose or wait for it to rain and the dirt u have shouldnt have any leaves or twigs in it because thattl keep the jump from hardening to the max.....u want at least a 2foot high jump with a sixfoot long gap....and in between every jump u have ur gonna want like a pit leading to the next one but keeping the concave leading to the next jump nice and smooth

    make your ramp the shape of a right triangle. then take a shovel and make the hypotenuse rounded out, pushing the dirt to the beginning of the ramp. pile up logs and throw dirt on it

    if your gonna be an idiot and not actually help why would you waste your time and answer. you need to e-blow me

    pile dirt on top of logs but make sure the logs are closer to the bottom and have A LOT of dirt over them so you can shape. There should be no flat parts in the jump. Make it a wedge/bank than as if making a quarter pipe take out some of the midlle of the wedge. when you get the top of the big pile of dirt dont make it like a quarter pipe. if its a big gap make not such a steep lip if its a small gap and the jumps decent sized make a steeper lip. you'll learn from experience
