Summary:
Where is this? Oh yeah, the last comment left here was 4 years ago, I'm a little late! If anybody knows if these are still here I would like to know how to get to them, I've been in the area a lot and haven't seen squat!

Summary:
I don't know what these other guys are talking about. Can't carry enough momentum on a MTB? You must either suck at jumping or be too weak to pedal hard enough. My buddies and I have been going to these jumps often lately, and have started building them up, or adding new, sick jumps. Anyone who hasn't been there lately should check it out, its been totally transformed. Great for mt bikes now. It requires a lot of sprinting to hit the jumps with enough speed, but its worth the effort.

Recommended Route:
Start off with the line on the left, then hit whatever your cahones are big enough to handle ;)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
BMX track, foothills trail (if you like climbing)

Summary:
I can do the biggest ones in the back right on my moutain bike w/ dj3's 5" of travel so i think its definitly possible(dont listen to the first review). but i just went there (9/7/04) and its really growing over w/ weeds. the only thing worth jumping there are some 6' gaps. check out my team page for more rides: www.freewebs.com/blacknblueridingcrew.

Recommended Route:
prospect and shields, go south on shields and turn left into first street alongside apartments called landmarks. its on the right at the end of that road.

Summary:
This location is a disaster for mountain bikes. Sure, if you have a BMX bike, you'll have a bit of fun, but frankly the mountain bike is too big and heavy to get enough momentum to clear 80% of the jumps. You'll wind up racking yourself hard. There's a few where you can grab some air, but it's not worth it. You're better bet is to hit the BMX course out at Edora park on East Prospect. Even better, go hit a real trail up in the valley.

Recommended Route:
far far away from it

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Youngs, Hewlitt's, Dadd's, Coyote Ridge, etc, etc, etc...

Summary:
It's a good start at some dirt Jumps.
But you cant carry any momentum to jump.

Recommended Route:
All are fairly decent starts at creating dirt jumps.
