What is the best kind of dirt to use for pump tracks, dirt jumps etc?
And more importantly, where can I get this magical dirt from? I'm in the Northern Boston suburbs. If I can source it nearby, I can pick it up a yard at a time. If it's harder to get or far away, I guess I'll just order a mountain of it :D

And no, you can't have my address, sorry :D

1 yard of dirt goes about 2 feet in pumptrack building.

I order it 10 yards at a time for my pumptrack and it still just looks like a tiny ribbon of dirt in the yard.

You want whatever dirt is local to you that has the highest clay content that you can find.
