Rock piles or other obstacles can offer an added challenge to your ride.
When on the trail, especially trails built specifically for mountain biking, you may come across jumps, rock piles or other obstacles that can offer an added challenge to your ride. Most jumps and other manmade trail features will usually offer an alternative route around. Before launching yourself off anything, it is best to first take this redirected route so you can evaluate the obstacle and landing area.
