So me and the homies just discovered a like 20-25, 000 sq. ft. opening in the woods and were getting ready to mow it up and make some trails, with tables, doubles, berms, hips, and all that fun stuff. Just looking for any info or blueprints to building the jumps! If not I guess we're just eyeballing it haha

This.

I usually use the shape of the land to create what I build.

I mean like info on how to set up the doubles and what not. And the best ways to pack the dirt. We won't have a steady water supply either

Use clay if you can.....good steep kickers work great with slightly taller landings

That looks like a fun set up.

The ones me and some friends did where all in a straight line but it was still pretty cool.

we were at the beach and all made what we wanted our trails to be like and then picked the winning one and built from it haha but yeah pretty fun and very fun to come off on the s bend or the first jump thing.

trailrambling.com has lots of great info.

don't make jumps in a strait line.
watch many trail videos for inspiration (canyoudigitbmx.com )
don't be afraid to put in work.
dig down until you get to quality dirt. If you use top soil, your jumps won't pack.
don't use filler like dead logs/etc.

Mostly you're going to have to experiment with gap distances.

Have fun.

If you add weird things like bridges and random berms etc to make it a lot more fun for you. A straight 6 pack or 8 pack can get a little dull without berms and such.
