From the landing you hit a flat turn and into the steps. Each tire is about 20 inches tall. From the front of the first tire to the next is about one bike length.

Then off the drop

The drop is roughly 40-45 inches, wont be bad to drop but climbing may cause some problems (lets hope)

After the pipe I am planning a whoop section. that leads to an uphill with off camber logs that I haven't started on
From web

At the top of the hill will be the rock section, when I get around to collecting the rocks. Thats it for now what do you think?

oh my that looks awesomely fun. Only thing I can think is the drop might need to be shored up with timber below the log if it's going to be climbed a lot.

I agree about being shored up, I have rocks under the log with clay hammered into the rocks. I am planning on drilling through the logs and hammering 5 foot sections of rebar through the log into the soil to hold them in place.

Let me know when you are ready to crack that open. I will bring food and a grill (notice I did not include motorcycle on that list because that track scares me) and we can have a ribbon cutting ceremony.

A bit of the new single track I rode last Sunday passed by this USGS Survey Marker. The sign said "do not disturb" but I couldn't resist moving it to the left six feet.

Uggh, mvd, our own little slice of hell on earth . I haven't been back to the state mvd since I tried the privately owned roadrunner mvd in Aztec, well worth the convenience fee for me.
