Question WANTED: Photos of cool log sections

We're working on setting up the Tilton IL trials (see signature below!).

the city mayor who manages the ATV park is willing to build us pretty much any log section we want; he'd just like to see some photos and some ideas, an we'd also like some creative ideas from other riders!!!

Douglas Kansas had some of the most wicked log sections in the parking lot. Any pics Mitch?

Pampa ,Texas was always the log queen of trials clubs. Every section would just be logs. Myself I never cared for logs, but I would go to Pampa just to force myself to get better. After a trials your calfs would just ache. This was a section at sipapu this year.

Logs are prevalent in MAVT sections. Go here: http://www.mid-atlantictrials.com/Menu.html and scroll down to the 2012 Event Photos button on the left. There's a page full of good pics there, and a link at the very bottom to another good page full.

Enjoy!

thanks, guys! love the 'ride it like a girl' Gordy! the only 2 sections we've seen this year that had logs were more of a 'maze' if you will -- maybe 10 logs in the whole section, hop across here, skirt around the end there. these shots are cool of a different type of option!

Interesting. When I think of logs, I think of logs incorporated into sections, not piles of logs. Do riders generally seem to enjoy the log pile sections?

Oh no, log sections are much better naturally where they fell. The log piles come to be when the land owners are cleaning the property. But trials riders just tend to ride what they get!
