    It's beat, and there's only one good lane on it (it's a dual slalom track). The dirt is hard to work with when it's dry too. It was the place to go a few years ago when slalom was cool, which it still is in my opinion!

    EDIT - removed to keep the place from getting too much attention.

    Had you been paying attention - you would know where it is by now.

    Yes. It's a good place...just needs lots of work. It's like the Sea Otter slalom coarse, really fast though and the jumps erode pretty fast.

    It was fun... but when I went up there after we dried out from last winters rain - someone had hacked it apart.

    I have no idea if it's been fixed or not.

    Anyone do any work on this track in the past few weeks? Have not been in a while and thought someone might do some work with the rains. Might be up for some work this weekend...

    Track is looking good. 1 line is open, berms are good, jumps need work, and second lane needs to be re-built. Rain all weekend so everything is looking up! The open line needs to be burned in after the rains and then it will be perfect. Jumps should be fixed after the rains too...when the dirt is soaked. The rains should be enough to get the track back to how it was around 02-03. Help is always appreciated!

    I'll be out there next weekend as long as my wife doesn't go into labor and my son takes a nap! This weekend is shot with Supercross and rain.

    It looks like people were trying to build some dirt jumps but I think some cross country guys tore them down. They started to tear down the jumps on the slalom track too but didn't get too far. There were a bunch of "cleat" marks where the jumps were messed with.

    looks like we got a work party going, let's get this place going again.

    Can anybody work during the week or only on weekends? I'm probably going to Fontucky next weekend but can work any other time.

    Anyone want to go work on the track this weekend? Also an old jump spot in Also Viejo (fully covered by trees) is being rebuilt. Its next to a creek that has water running year round. Might be cool to get the place running again.

    Email for directions/etc.. JonnyCanfield@hotmail.com

    Did you guys go out there last weekend? I wont be working on the track for a while. My wife just had our second son on the 14th, so we're extremely busy these days and I can't justify leaving her alone for too long.

    This track is looking good w/ one line. 2nd line will be alot more work. Looks like kids on 20" BMX bikes are building lips on the jumps. I guess if you want to do tail whips and Back flips you need a lip. In my opinion, a DS track should have plenty of jumps, but the point is you can roll/pump/manual/single/double or triple ALL of them. DS is all about maintaining SPEED not tricks. It would be really cool if the kids who live here really wanted a sweet DS track. Being there is no place around. It would be really fun to show up and race your buddies for bragg'n rights.

    Look at the SEA OTTER for design ideas.
