Getting Started on my Backyard Mountain Bike Trails

  • Published on Sep 6, 2019
  • We've been doing lots of home renovation and improvement projects for the past few weeks, and it has all been in preparation for the main course: The backyard mountain bike trails! Today, we build the Berm Peak Express, a climbing trail that ends at the summit of my property.
    From there, we will build a trailhead, and all the routes that will descend from the top. Join me for a day of building, DIY, and lots of fun.

    You can mark future trails with pieces of wood with bright colors of spray paint on the end that is facing up. Also you can use different colors of spray paint for each trail

    You should modify the enduro barrow by swapping its wheel for a fat bike wheel so it is more stable

    Seth thanks for the vids. I'm here in NC too, Winston. I'm going to be moving to a house with 6 acres almost all wooded. How many acres do you have and how much trail are you going to have (lengthwise). Just trying to gauge it for my own trails.

    Just cut up a red or orange cotton t-shirt for marking the trail. That should probably decompose nicely
