So i have a friend that is pretty much a poser bmx rider, but he went to some trails once and he wants me to go with him. But idk anything about the trails and i don't want to just roll up and ride. They are built in some woods behind a bmx race track but they weren't built by the track owners. I don't know if they are public trails or are a crews private spot. Should i go ride them or just put more work in on my own trails?

Dig first (fix lips and landings) and if they look good sweep the lose dirt off the jumps and then ride and remember one thibng if you fuck anything up fix it.

Yeah get down there man, introduce yourself to any locals that are there, ask them if they need a hand with anything before you start fucking with anything. Some people won't approve of you even fixing up lips and shit unless they know you what your doing, it'll depend how manicured they are.

Do it dude, the trail life is a good life.

dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

It depends on who made the trails, but usually they'll be fine if you look after it. The maker of the trails nearest to me is happy to see people ride them, but he doesn't like people damaging the jumps on purpose. However he doesn't care if someone cases and damages the landing, because he knows it wasn't on purpose.

YES! Go! At least check them out.. there's no harm in that. You might meet some of the builders, introduce yourself and let em know you're down to dig. That's the way you make new friends to ride with! "Nothing ventured, nothing gained." I went with a couple friends to check out some trails we heard about, about two weeks ago... they are dope. Not too huge, lots of cool berm runs and hips for days.. all shaded by trees. An awesome find, super fun to ride fast. On our second visit, two local kids showed up. No biggie. We said whats up. Talked, complimented their work.. they ended up showing us their shovel stash and they're totally cool with us riding their work. These trails aren't too far from were I live, actually right under my nose. I'm glad I explored that area. DTD! DOWN TO DIG!

Go and be willing to put in work. If you are not willing to grab a shovel and help out (with what the builders want, not what works for you), then stay out.

If you are willing to put in some work, then by all means, give it a go.

ALWAYS check out other forms of riding you don't typically do, you never know how it will help your riding.

dont be a bitch and hit them
]try riding your bike faster than 3mph

theb one day bring a shovel and build a jump next to them just like them\
cept build the gap a couple feet bigger
then build more jumps there
then have youre friends come jump them with you
then have your friend come jump them with you
then all you build bigger jumps
then one day you have shit like this
