2' boardwalk following the terrain 72' long, 2-3' high, with 2' drop or tapered runoff (these exits not in pics either)
(not pictured...2.5' tall x ~12' diameter, shaped, built up bank, and layout of about ~200' more trail that will have banks, jumps (gap maybe, most likely table, one ramped ?' x 3' drop, and hopefully even a wall ride?

results from this weekends work:
continued grooming/building of shaped berm
construction of another elevated platform stepping up twice in height culminating at 7' high and 3' wide, followed by an exit ramp at 32 degree slope feeding into a table top. both sides of the 7' section are lined with hay bails. i am trying to persuade the club president into a 'retaining wall' on one side of the bails which could conveniently double as a tranny for the drop.

thanks. we had a pretty good turn out. im almost positive that we are going to be doing more trail construction in december (cutting new trails) but i am also trying to get permission to make a sweet log ride on the trail (the pics in the above link are actually at the trail head near the parking lot for easy access to medical attention :p)
