BMX Park Etiquette - 26er

Is it considered a cultural trespass to take a mountain bike on a BMX park course? Assuming it's uncrowded, staying out of the BMXers way, working on technique ... not big air.

You might get some hate. But that happens anywhere and everywhere. I mean if I even ride some spots that I'm not really a local to, some people get a little territorial.

It is not considered trespassing or wrong. I've rode bmx at parks and private trails for over a decade and have many friends who ride their 29ers at the same places. Just be considerate, take turns and respect what ever your terrain riding. People (bmx, skate, etc) only get offended when you cut them off, get in their way or continually go without taking turns.
