Great trails start with great designs. At CTD, we start from the basics- thoroughly analyzing spaces for all of their constraints and opportunities. We collaborate with land managers, public agencies and local trail users to source data and ensure a comprehensive understanding of the landscape.

CTD offers a full range of concept and planning services. Using the latest geospatial and graphic design software, we can provide comprehensive analysis for trail feasibility and develop concepts for complete systems, realignments, bike parks and skills areas.

While many communities are focused on expanding their trail system, others are seeking solutions for maintenance and management. CTD specializes in creating customized maintenance plans for communities that ensure a sustainable, safe, and fun recreation facility with minimal burden on local resources.

While great design can significantly reduce maintenance, empowering the community to take ownership and care of their trails is one of the core philosophies of trail sustainability. Along with great design, skilled volunteers and public employees are crucial to the long-term success of a trail system. 

CTD also offers trail maintenance workshops for staff and volunteers. Learn more about our training and workshops here.
