Whomever did this work knew what the heck they were doing:thumbsup:jmw said:nice
around here, we use rock armoring to harden up squishy spots, there's big rock pitched together underneath the gravel dust topping that is used to lock it all in.
first picture was right after we finished this little spot, so now the rock is actually more visible (2nd pic is a few weeks later)
Actually, that's perfectly level ground with a lake in the background - there's no ramp. The ground was trenched out and large pieces of shale were fitted in at approximately a 45-degree angle in the trench giving sort of an optical illusion that there's a ramp in the picture. Does makes for an amazingly tight, strong armoring that still allows water to move through underneath. Riding over it absolutely nothing shifts, unlike regular lay-it-flat on or just into the soil surface stuff.traildoc said:Do you have any pictures of mountain bikers riding up your rock ramp?
