Our team of consultants travel the province of BC working with stakeholders to plan, improve and design trails.  We believe in education as an essential ingredient to increase capacity and improve technique. Led by our Principal Consultant Mark Wood, we deliver trail workshops and field training sessions, teaching participants specialized skills based on years of experience in the field.  With the goal to build sustainable, fun and exciting trails, we foster the ecological vision to harmonize with the environment to build trails that will stand the test of time. 

"We don’t build trails, we build community."
