So, the dirt at our trail is horrible and full of rocks and sand. Our idea was to mix it with clay, but the clay we have available is just so dense that it's almost impossible mix in a realistic manner.

I've basically just resorted to using the bad dirt as filler and burying everything under a layer of clay. Obviously that's not ideal but it works.

looks good!

I'm pretty sure there is some good dirt there, you just have to dig way down to find it. Any idea if/when you're getting dirt from the school?

We got a bunch of dirt from the school a few weeks ago, it's pretty much the same stuff as whats down there though (if not worse).

I'll try digging in a few different spots to look for better dirt.

just dig strait down in one spot. you may need 3-4 feet down but before you find good dirt.

Started fixing up a spot for the little runts that come in the shop all the time. I figure if I can ride down the street and ride a little dirt after work instead of drive 20 minutes to catty or posh every day I might as well I'll snap a few pics tomorrow after work.

since our trails got plowed we've been working with the city to make the public jumps better. (basicly, we want big jumps, they want rollers)

We had a work party to put in this berm for the little line.
