If you find the last dispersed camping spot in the canyon are you bothered by the dust, noise, and lack of privacy? Or are you grateful
Not sure what to do in camp to fill the time? One of our favorite things to do is to build a camp jump and jump our bikes. We improve our “air” skills, entertain the dogs and have fun!
We’ve built camp jumps all over the West and these are a few of our favorites:
- desert camp jump
- high desert camp jump
- alpine camp jump
- hoodoo camp jump
To build your own camp jump, follow these basic steps:
- Grab a chair and drink a beer or two (mandatory). Sit until bored.
- Scout the area for materials, quality of dirt and ride-in options.
- Build the jump. Finish with water, if necessary, and a good whack with a shovel.
- Jump your bike!*
