What’s your plan? Trail Solutions can help you shape a vision for your trail system. We’ll help bring your plan to life while minimizing obstacles. We love trails that provide fun, flow, and technical challenge for bikes, but we know that most trail systems attract all kinds of visitors including walkers, hikers, and trail runners.

How long will your trails endure and serve your community? A well-designed trail is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. Skillful design reduces maintenance, encourages safe use, and complements the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Exceptional trails also provide users with great experiences, whether that means a thrill for advanced riders or an approachable experience for beginners. We design innovative, progressive trail systems that offer recreational opportunities for all users and keep them coming back for years.

Meet the Trail Solutions team

What we needed most was a vision for our trail system and Joey Klein [of Trail Solutions] definitely delivered! I also appreciate the way Joey effectively communicated with the Army Corps of Engineers and our trail volunteers. I can’t thank Joey enough for his attention to detail and hard work.
