End Of The Line

The trails will be leveled this week. We were told to take our tarps and tools out of the woods before the Heavy equipment arrives. The owner who so kindly let us stay so long and use his property must relieve all opportunity for liability issues before the land can be signed over as Federally Protected Land, which was the only option after the Supreme Court ruled no housing development could be built on the land last year. So we have some photos of what we are leaving behind. We are sad and hurt to see our creation destroyed. Our creativity, art, passion, time, energy, sweat and blood have been poured out into these woods to build a place where dreams became reality. Gravity was defied. Friends were made and brought closer together. Food was grilled and cooked over open fires. Hundreds of shovels were worn out or broken. We took care of the trees and animals like you would take care of your own home. Dirt was dug, moved, smoothed and packed into structures of airborne flow. We flowed this woods for SEVEN years. So the end of the line has come. We will lose all the time, and all of our creation but we will not lose our love for building and riding trails. We are Trailbuilders, this is what we do. We build and we ride the biggest, best, most unique amazing high-speed form of jumps possible. And we never give up because we are trialbuilders throughout our heart and soul. Memories of this woods will last forever!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is just a small portion of Shovels we destroyed while creating our great dirt sculptures.

    So sad to hear of things like this… It’d be one thing if you guys trashed the place, but you all kept it completely spotless, looks like heaven on earth as far as trails go… if you guys decide to start rebuilding somewhere new, keep the blog going, and hopefully I can get in touch with you guys some how to come and help rebuild. These trails were downright insane, and an inspiration to trail builders everywhere.
