Professionally designed features
The Dirt Jump Park was built and designed by Kyle Ebbett, former World Cup Downhill Mountain Bike Racer, dirt jump professional, and course designer for multiple pro-level mountain bike events. The construction of the park was a collaborative effort between the Town of Wilmington, local supporters, The Barkeater Trails Alliance, and an army of volunteers. This park is an incredible community resource that would have never become a reality without the help of so many, including Hardy Kids. A special thanks goes out to Meg Parker and Matt McNamara of Wilmington for their significant financial contribution.
Throughout the building process Kyle continuously sought the input of the local riders with the end result being a place that is well taken care of and really fun ride. Kids and adults of all ages are certain to find a feature in the park that suits their skills perfectly. Less aggressive riders will love the smooth feeling of rolling over the pump track while aggressive tricksters will enjoy the progression offered by the varying sizes of jumps. Any bike that is suitable for dirt is appropriate to use at the park.
Open for all riders
The bike park is free and open to the public during daylight hours. All riders should do their part to ensure the good condition of the park by not riding when soil conditions are wet. Helmets are always required in the park. Please respect the rules and have fun!
