Columbus OH, Westerville Dirt Jumps?

There's a nice little skatepark and BMX track in Westerville OH.
Rumor has it that there's some maintained Dirt Jumps somewhere near there.

I rode a short way up the bike path in January but didn't see anything.

Anybody been there?

Yes!  I spent most of my childhood there haha.  The bike path runs right next to it.  If you park at the bmx track/skate park go back to the bike path and follow it to the right.  Take the paved path for maybe a 1/4 mile and it's on the right side.  You can't miss it.  If you end up at Main street, you went too far.  This should get you there.  If you have any problems send me a PM.smile

After the bridge.  If you scroll up just a little bit on the map you posted you will see a pond on the left side of the path.  The trails are directly across the path from the pond in those trees.

Someday I'd like to swing by there too. I am recovering from a few surgeries, so I'm not looking to tempt fate right now. I think I saw some pictures online and it looked pretty good.

Re: Columbus OH, Westerville Dirt Jumps?

I rode up there in Late January, before the blizzards but there was snow on the trail in the woods so I didn't go much past the bridge.
I wasn't expecting them to be "ready" quite yet but I was thinking about taking a shovel down to Heer Park and/or these trails this weekend and seeing if there was any work to be done..
