    My Friends Trail -PICS!-

    This spring me and 3 friends spent 3 days straight building a trail near his house from scratch, with nothing but an ATV, some shovels, a chainsaw, a few rakes, a trailer all the trees/stumps we would ever need, as much dirt as we needed, and some firewood. Its good where we made it because we could drive the ATV through the woods and cut down anything we needed and just load it in the trailer, and nobody cares. It turned out OK, but we want bigger and more jumps. We want it to be alot longer too. This trail is real fast pace and one mistake messes you up so bad you cant hit the next jump. I only have pictures of the last 3 jumps where it turns flat, but the course starts off steep, then theres a gap jump right into a left hand berm, then into a tree section, then theres a step down to a huge right hand berm, and then theres those 3 jumps shown. I got to hit the track alot, and was great. But then I broke my ankle later on in the summer somewhere else, so Im not shown here. Tell me what you think, and what suggestions you have to make it better.

    From the top of the last section.


    1st jump of the last section.


    2nd jump of the last section. Haha, look at that nice support.


    Last jump.


    Taylor hitting it.


    Taylor again.

    Thats Nice! We dont have anywhere to do anything like that around my house...

    Are there any hills/banks? That would make it a lot more interesting.

    Yes, there is a ton if hills and banks. If you look in the picture of the last jump you can see where it goes from flat to really steep all the way down the rest of the mountain.

    We've been thinking about making it so you start in the same place, then you can go off onto 3 or 4 differerent trails to the left and right, and then they all connect to the same spot again later on down the mountain. We've also been looking for a good spot to put up some north shores.
