Reply To: Help with MTB EPQ A level


My observation of trail builders is that they kind of know but ultimately they get close and ride it to see if it works. Having built a few small runs behind my house and realizing there needs to be more room for turns or whatever, I feel there should be some basic rules of thumb. I would focus on what is the rule of the thumb and then what are the allowances that fit within the parameter. It seems builders intuitively know this and use a bit of art to design the trails based on what the terrain gives them.
