Track at Umikaze Park

Average Rating:    (4.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

As the "Trail Name" implies this is just a track. It has some tumblers two small jumps two four jumps and two high jumps. I've seen people of all ages and skills ride this track and have fun doing it. The skills required are those you bring with you. A word of caution though two of the medium jumps are pretty close together in such a way that if you clear the first one you will be shot over the second one before you realize what's happening. So get to know the track before you start doing tail-whips and such.
Also due to the close proximity of the tennis courts it's not uncommon to see a ball roll across the track usually followed by a person who is trying to retrieve it so keep an eye out.

Summary:
I gotta say, I started riding again on this track 4 months ago. I haven't stopped since. I love this track and atmosphere. I used to ride BMX, but wanted to get into MTB dirt jumping. This is a great track to learn. Most of the jumps are table tops, so if you're not quite clearing them yet, it's ok. This track is home to Cycle Cave (local MTB dirt jumping shop)team riders. It's not uncommon to see some pretty big air there. All of the regular riders are super cool and take a lot of pride in the track. It's not uncommon to see five or six people out there with shovels in the pouring rain. But remember if you ride, you must dig. So keep up the trend.

Recommended Route:
Right across from Homes.

Summary:
The obvious starting point would be the outside embankment by the street but after riding it a few times you will find out that everybody usually sits on top of the first medium jump so that they can skip the small stuff in move into the trickier big air jumps. Starting off from the first medium hill you will come up another one about 10 feet in front. If you build up enough speed you can do a trick off of this jump. I would not recommend it unless you are very skillful at recovering because as soon as you land you will hit the seaside bank which turns you around to the next four jumps. You have to medium jumps which are pretty close together so make sure you're good after the first one because that second one is nearly unavoidable. After clearing these two jumps you'll have two larger jumps which were built at a steeper angle to accommodate for higher air to do tricks. After these two jumps you come to the second bank at which point you can take the inside snap around bank or the outside path which isn't banked so you pretty much have to stop to avoid going on to the sidewalk.

Recommended Route:
This track is a work in progress so if you can make up a new route and make it look good, do it.
