pump track design plans?

does anyone have any links to pumptrack design/layout plans that are suitable for public parks? i'm looking for something similar to the highbridge layout, but possibly smaller. what i am looking for is a good resource on how to go about building one that would be suitable for a public park that doesn't have a ton of space. some of the features that i would like to look into are a beginner/intermediate DJ line, a small area of skinnies, and a pumptrack.

You must build, they will come. Just get a group of people together with similar interests and start building. I build by myself sometimes and it gets boring and seems like I get no where.

I always refer to Higbridge as a benchmark for public use. It is small, fun, and safe. But you have to prepare for the public hack - He comes in many forms, I've even seen him on rollerblades in the pump track. I sh1t you not, f***ing rollerblades!!!

that small one - with the wall ride - that is probably something that'll work. dude - thanks for finding all this. its awesome! the leelikesbikes link is great.

NJ-XC-J - i'm using some of this for a proposal that i'm sending to a local township rec dept for a super-long-shot possibility of a small bike skills park to be added to a local township park. i figured it was worth a shot. some of the things i am including are a pumptrack and some not-so-high skinnies, and a beginner DJ line.

If you need drafted plans made I may be of assistance.

Dont rule out the idea of a multiuse park that wood have to include the use of concrete. Sayerville is a blast if you get there b4 the tight pants do.
