I like riding around on the pump track with my mountain bike but it's getting hard to see because the weeds are growing all over it. it would be nice if they could do some weed wacking around the pump track and some of the other jumps.

This is a MTB/BMX skills track. It is built for adrenaline junkies. The jumps are extreme and the obstacles are technical to say the least. If you like to clip in and your other bike is a road bike, avoid this track. There is nothing here which will appeal to the cross country guys. Aerobic types need not apply. If you like flat pedals, rode BMX as a kid (or still do), and wear scabs packed with clay like badges of honor this just might be your nirvana.

There is no route. This isn't like that. It's more like ready, set, GO! Choose a line you think won't kill you and bomb it... Then do it again, and again, and again.

This is a BMX monstrosity why is it even on a mountain bike forum. I tried to make the best of it by making the largest of all the lines into a short epic up hill training course and I had a bunch of punk kids tell me I was going the wrong way and not to "Roll the Lip". I’m sorry but I don’t understand all this new jive talk these kids are throwing around today but I figured due to the fact that this place is called a bike park and not a BMX park I would be able to roll in on my SS 29er no problems. They should call cambr cambBr the extra b being for BMX of course. I didn’t join a BMX club. I joined a MOUNTAIN BIKE club. What kind of cycling community do we live in when a man gets kicked out of a so called BIKE PARK for representing some lycra and clipless.

A series of 4 dirt table jumps. Difficulty levels progress in four levels from 2 foot high beginner jumps to 7 foot high expert jumps.

A rhythm jump section with options to hip left or right. A step-up, saddle jump, jump into a spine, jump into a bank, and a tool shed container.

A pump track.

Progressive log spines.

A skills area with progressive log overs, rock drops, and skinnies. Expert skills area (not finished yet) will have a traffic barrier spine and a picnic table drop.

This park is built by volunteers. Most dirt jump builders do not ever tell anyone where their trails are ever! Please respect this park and help us take care of it.
