Maybe this is some sort of unconscious new years resolution on my part, but I am going to try and make a habit of posting regular progress reports on the work being done on the Dirt Corps Line at Duthie, which we call Semper Dirticus (which is also our motto :) )

First up, we finally got the wall fully framed and have a temporary plywood deck on it so that we are able to test it and tweak it before we commit to milled/split cedar planking

Then we also tweaked the take-off on the cedar coaster above it to reduce some of the buck. Having a tree top blow down on the structure in that spot prompted us finally to make the change.

As you can see in this pic, the lip is much more gradual and flatter... and it makes a difference when you ride it.

We'd also been discussing the idea of putting a side kicker next to the coaster for those days when the wood is wet, or you just want to skip the pedal needed to step-up onto the coaster... So we built one.

And then this last shot is MattPatt testing the new side shooter. Works like a charm and the speed coming off it is nice.

Hoping folks can get out there and enjoy it soon. Take care and have fun.

Damn that looks like alot of fun.

@DirtCorps do you ride trails like this with or without clips and shoes?
@Teders - we pretty much always ride flat pedals with 5.10 shoes which hook up so good it feels like you're clipped in. I personally also like to ride in a pair of worn out old mud boots... but that's just me :)

Duthie Hill is a new (actually still under construction) mountain biking park and is 30 mins East of Seattle, WA roughly between the cities of Issaquah, Fall City and Sammamish.

ohh whaat!!!?? seattle? i thought i was looking at a local thread from virginia. heh i dont think ill be seeing duthie park anytime soon, still looks sooo fun.
These things don't happen overnight. JVP (Juice here) was in negotiations with the county parks dept. for over 5 years before a shovel was even put to dirt. Ya gotta think long-term if you're gonna end up with a skills park like this.
