About Us

As founder of Trails Unlimited I have worked for the federal government for more than 40 years. We continue to provide private consulting services for sustainable trail development and management.

I am considered one of the “Old Ones.” My team and I of current and retired trail experts have decades of experience in “On the Ground” problem solving of difficult trail design, construction, maintenance, and reconstruction situations.

Trails Unlimited has helped write the National Trail Contracts, Standards, and Drawings. We have also helped with the production of several trail program videos and “Tech Tips” Technical Papers. Trails Unlimited is one of the few trail management companies to develop a series of Training Modules with detailed manuals, exercises, and field applications. All to help to assemble or strengthen your own trail management team.

Your Trails Are Our Concern

Our trail assessment services are available to any organization that provides public or private trails. We have more than 40 years of experience working all over the United States including Alaska and Hawaii. Our staff has experience with all ecosystems and terrain, from rocky to swampy, along with arid, tropical, mountain, arctic, and permafrost.
