Dirt jumping evolved from BMX and mountain bike racing. But, unlike those two riding disciplines, dirt jumping isn’t about speed it’s about jump heights and the style of tricks a rider can perform. There are many different types of jumps used in dirt jumping, including: Tabletops, rollers, step ups and whoops–all which we have (and more) at the Makawao Forest Reserve or at the Maui Bike Park. There are three separate dirt jump and skills areas each with progressively more difficult jumps and terrain.
This class of bike are very popular among a broad range of age groups. And, because the riding areas for dirt jumping Makawao Forest Reserve Trails are set up for first time riders to experts, its an activity nearly everyone can enjoy.
