I have a hill behind my house that works well. I have cut down a bunch of those pesky GA pines that are in my yard and they can make good obstacles I used spikes/PVC pipe to hold them in place. It is good training for any kind of riding.
Cheers,
Doug

This video was taken over at HighFive's house. He's got this stepped wall you can see in the video, a couple spools, a couple dirt mounds, and a few large logs to play on.

Had two loads of rocks delivered, Used my Durmax to position a couple of them.

Try to find some railroad ties or old trees, they are great to practice on, Any old junk can be fun.
I know of one fellow who just made mounds of dirt, covered them with chicken wire and then cement, he made some real cool stuff to play on.
