Natural surface trails, also known as soft surface trails, are in high demand, fitting into locations as diverse as urban parks to federally designated Wilderness. Designing and constructing natural surface trails requires expertise to ensure that the resulting work doesn’t negatively impact the surrounding environment, can be maintained by the land management agency, and is beneficial to the user, whether the trails are intended for hikers, runners, mountain bikers, or equestrians.
