    Anyone know of any dirt jumps in Charlotte, NC? I'm just getting back into BMX and would love some dirt jumps. I don't mind helping dig and doing some work.

    Behind UNC. I have not been there in a while, but know they are still up and going. Big, but lots of fun!

    It's called the Fruit Trails.... get in touch with Sam Anderson of Dirt Passion. That crew pretty much takes care of those trails these days.

    This seems to be the case everywhere. The skatepark generation has zero work ethic.

    Yo, I assume you're the same guy posting on the local forums. If so, I sent you instructions to find the UNCC stuff. Let me know if you have any trouble finding it.

    I believe so..... Chris Annesi posted a video they shot about 2 months ago, so I can only assume yes though I haven't been out there myself.

    Hmm... Looks like I'm gonna have to go lookin' for and checkin out these jumps after this weekend!

    I just moved out to Charlotte from San Diego, yesterday. While I didn't bring my shovels with me, Home Depot has my back! I'm more than willing to help anyone maintain the goods. :-)

    If anyone could PM me directions, it'd be very helpful and I'd be very grateful.
