    I miss digging. Wish the trails i moved next to allowed anything more than basic maintenance like drain clearing. Its a super popular state park and the rangers and hikers would freak out if berm were put in, or anything interesting was done. Oh well.

    I agree with both parts. My rear derailler on the other hand...not so much. : )

    State parks where...CA or NV? A friend moved up to Reno a few years ago and was salivating over how much easier NV land managers were to deal with vs in CA.

    Ha!

    I enjoy low consequence ones. Always need to be prepared to hop off to increase your chances of saving the derailleur. I made this one yrs ago now and probably have cleaned it a half dozen times out of 300 attempts. It's a tires width at the end.

    Washington. Its in a very urban area that sees a ton of hiker traffic so i can understand why it would be near impossible to get "fun" mtb trails approved. Plenty of other opportunities for me to dig, its just id have to hop in the car to get there which wastes time i dont really have right now. Way better access to sanctioned and unsanctioned digging out here than in CA.

    Fixed Concussion Corner to make CBuster great again.

    Old work had lasted a decade but some of the stumps holding up the runout had pulled out and the bank had collapsed.

    Pulled out the stumps and saved them. Installed posts to shore up the bank. Then backfilled with the stumps as backup. athe rebuilt the runout with rock and soil but No Berms to keep it old school and janky... just the way it always was. Name:  20220501_191443.jpeg

    Back at it at my restoration project last week for a few sessions.








    This is actually an "after" shot. I walked ahead to the firebreak you can just make out in the distance and then trimmed the worst stuff on the way back. It is rideable now, just a bit brushy.

    This Travis tool is so amazing! Wish I had it ten years ago. Started work on a berm. It's gonna be a water trap, but I'll dig a gully on the front side to catch it.

    Too much rain to ride, may as well make our hike productive.

    Dig stoke, who else likes to play in the dirt???

    LOL, heart shape. Two back/right side berms will have an opposing one connecting them. Small jump line running parallel to the far straight/upper left side.

    Few months ago posted some build sketches in this thread.

    Full day of solid work rebuilding sections, reloaming trails and preparing teeter totters. Great success

    Was going to do some trimming on my local yesterday, but instead joined big work party on new trail at one of my favorite riding spots 30 min away.

    Going to be a fun one, though distance of gap is probably not something I'm hitting anytime soon.

    That looks real fun! That dirt makes me jealous but dang, that's a big build for a hand job.

    Blowing out little berms with the Travis makes a huge difference. I'm finally spending a little bit of time enhancing what exists instead of new. So many corners need a tire hold. I'm only doing one slice down then a slice in front pulling that back and up. So the firm dirt that actually holds the tire is shallow. Of course I drifted up and crashed.

    Probably close to 15 of us chipping in. Not sure how many dig days before, trail definitely nearing completion though.

    Also one from my backyard pumptrack nearing completion. Ripped a bunch of laps tonight w my daughter
