Building & Riding a Gnarly Backyard Rock Garden

Berm Peak is missing one thing: Rocks! How I chose a property with no rocks to build mountain bike trails on is beyond me. I didn’t even know dirt with no rocks in it was even a thing. In any case, we’re taking matters into our own hands today, bringing in some rocks, and placing them by hand to build a rock garden! Rock gardens are a mainstay in mountain biking, and we’re really excited to finally have one here on Berm Peak. Enjoy the toil!

  • My dad bought some boulders in St Louis to build a pod with this around it, we moved before he could start on it so now there’s a house with two massive ass boulders that required a 39 year old to get help from a 7 year old and a 4 year old... I was the four year opd

  • Speaking as someone who lives in a placed called "Rockville," consider yourself lucky there aren't more rocks at Berm Peak. Especially as much as you have to dig. It took me the better part of an afternoon just to plant a tree last week, and there's no such thing as "drilling down" in a precise spot. You dig, find a huge rock, and have no choice but to widen your hole to get around it. It's no fun.

  • I love watching Seth transform the property. It was a serendipitous situation that he had completed the move to the new place and when the lockdown occurred he had the perfect opportunity to hole-up with Alex and build. But I feel that WE are the true beneficiaries. So many you-tubers have scaled-back their production. Thank you, Seth, for forging on!
