System and Trail Design

Sometimes a single trail is all that’s needed. Other times a client may want a network of trails.

System design takes a more comprehensive approach. It includes connectivity to existing and planned trails, maximizing utilization of the area while avoiding “trail pollution,” and ensuring the trails meet the client’s objectives for user experience. Southwest Trail Solutions staff have designed trail systems for a variety of uses, including backcountry hiking trails, technical mountain biking routes, wide urban pathways, and mountain bike competitive courses.
