fastest? find more diggers.

Jumps are built with ONE scoop of dirt at a time so if you want a big jump you need MANY scoops. There is a reason why not many people dig trails. It requires work. LOTS of work.

Remember, top soil, sticks/logs and crappy dirt doesn't make good jumps because you can't pack the dirt.

Trial and error is how you learn. Watch trail videos, get inspired and get friends to help dig.

no dig. no ride.

I just moved into a subdivision under development, and am going to build a couple jumps right next my house for now. There's plenty of dirt around, and Missouri has some great dirt for just this purpose.
