Today, we revisit "Snake Pit" trail, and make an alternate "intermediate" line. The main difference is, our intermediate line does not contain a gap jump. Brian and Alexander join me in this one! Check out their channels below

Im not a mountain biker or even cyclist by any stretch of the definition. Though, this channel and a few similar channels got me hyped, so I picked up a neat little electric for cruising my city!

and my trails in my hometown, we had a tree ride with no planks and then someone put a metal mesh screen on it to help with traction because it was mossy and slick.

Isn't the point of a skinny to be skinny and challenging? You're making it wider seems to defeat the purpose

Hi people that are reading the comments. I’m kinda new to mountain biking. Which video do you suggest I watch?
Luke 922
Luke 922 27 days ago
Rajan Reddy I would suggest watching the video on Berm Peak Express where Seth upgrades his neighbors mountain bike. He goes over how good that diamondback is for a beginner at a good price. He also goes over some basic and more advanced upgrades in that video.

take the top peice and cut it so it fits perfectly in your garage then put it bark side out against a wall so its like a tree
Frank Myers

It would probibly be more safe if the alternate side was straight instead of to the side.

Been watching your channel a while but not sure I've ever commented. Love the content. I BMX so while not MTB, I've been having a blast in the woods riding with my two young kids. Might have to get an MTB in the next year since, as you know, BMX just can't handle some of nature's features.

I built a log ride similar to this on my channel, please check it out
Мирный Воин
Great job Seth! I would recommend you to do lighting and more accurate line signs on the trail so many people can come and ride it. I mean 10 buks, 3 hours per person. That would pay off and if there would be too many people, you can do way more trails

You might think about getting a block and tackle pulley to increase the winches pulling power. So you guys don't have to man handle the wood so much.

I find it so bizarre, or as many would say these day, ironic, that people build raised, wooden structures for biking hills. I know they throw you in prison for touching soil these days but....

Dude, you are one tenacious builder, I bet so many people say I want to do what Seth does but 98 percent would stop there. It looks like you are doing quite well fulfilling your ideas and living your dream. Your channel is both fun to watch and a great place to learn about trail building, using your environment and getting ideas. I'm sure "keep it up" is obvious but keep it up, I'm waiting for the next episode on: ta ta ta... Berm peak, the place you want to spend your time during lock down, and probably during normal time as well. 🤘

Maybe it's called a "Magic Carpet"? I've seen it at Ray's before; it's like a moving platform you ride on, hit the brakes, then glide to the other side. Hook it up to a pulley, and it resets itself! You'll should do one of those!!!

You need to make a trail with features after the jump before the driveway across the driveway could make a tecnical or jump trail

You and Matt Jones need to meet up after all this is over. You to ride his back yard trails, and him to make a visit to Berm Peak!
The trail looks badass! Great job man!
