well if you can maximize ur space, draw out what you want and then when you do it try to use natuaral corridors, i would try to bank my turns to.

We built a little track at my buddies house couple years ago. we just cut up everthing that was in the way. Left alot of little challanges to get across but it turned out nice. It might take you awhile to get it how you want it, but once you get it done you will notice alot of "friends" calling to come ride your track [:D]

Walk through and mark it out first, then go through and do any cutting needed.
This way you will minimize the amount of work needed to have a nice trail.
Use the natural contures for maximum fum.

I would go to your local bobcat dealer and rent a brush hog for a day. Probably would help blazing a trail too.

spread some desiel fuel on what you want gone and light a match. Very effective. Also, be sure to do only a little at a time, fires can get out of hand FAST!!!

Also do this a couple days after a rain or when the ground is somewhat wet.

Use some of the trees you cut down and put logs in corners so you can build a berm up onto it. Nice big berms in tight corners means high speed adrenaline rush!

bobcats can be rented fairly easily - do all your planning and cutting ahead of time and use the rented bobcat to pull remaining stuff out.
