STROUDS RUN STATE PARK - OHIO

Client: Ohio State Parks & Department of Natural Resources

Scope: We constructed the ADA-accessible Blackhaw Trail within Strouds Run State Park in Athens, Ohio to give people with mobility disorders, such as those who are in wheelchairs, the ability to enjoy firsthand the shores of Dow Lake. The 2,200-foot long gravel path is ADA-compliant and was built with the fundraising assistance from the Friends of Strouds Run.

GOLF COURSE - MICHIGAN

Client: Cascade Hills Country Club

Scope: We built three miles of singletrack trails for enjoyment by the members of a renowned, private country club in Grand Rapids, Michigan. With the focus on making the trails beginner-friendly and mindfully connecting them with the existing network of golf cart paths, we manicured the trails to fit perfectly within their golf course setting. Finally, we worked in some features to make them interesting for expert riders, too. The end result was our mostly highly fit and finished trails to date.

AVALANCHE PRESERVE - MICHIGAN

Client: Top of Michigan Mountain Bike Association

Scope: We were hired to design and build mountain bike-specific trails in Avalanche Preserve, a former ski hill perched on one of the highest points in northern Michigan and just two miles from the city of Boyne’s central business district. As a popular, heavy-use area among both locals and visitors, we had to factor many social considerations into our design. Working in cooperation with the Top of Michigan Mountain Bike Association, we ultimately constructed nine miles of new, multi-use trails that various user groups now support and enjoy. To date, the finished project has received rave reviews from users of all types and city officials.

HAMMOND HILL PARK - MICHIGAN

Client: Western Michigan Mountain Bike Association

Scope: What was once a sparsely used park is now a vibrant oasis in central Michigan. In an effort to give an economic boost to the small city of Hastings, we were contracted by the local mountain bike club to design and build trails in an underutilized pocket park just three miles from the central business district so that mountain bikers - and other users - could enjoy them. We constructed six miles of beginner and intermediate level multi-use trails for both summer and winter use. The Western Michigan Mountain Bike Association not only keeps the trails clear and open in the summertime, but it also snow grooms the trails for use by fat bikers and others in the winter.

WAHLFIELD FLOW TRAIL/FIELD OF DREAMS - MICHIGAN

Client: Kent County Parks & the Western Michigan Mountain Bike Association

Scope: A cornfield without a big change in elevation doesn’t seem like a typical destination for trails, but thanks to the sponsorship of a beer company that supported this project, we designed and built the Wahlfield Flow Trail consisting of three flow trails coming off the top of a small hill -  each increasing in difficulty and speed. Upon completion of the project, which augmented the existing trail network, the park planted native prairie grass to create what would be the first field flow trails in the area.
