In an ideal world we would have professional skilled machine operators bring their dozers in and rough cut a trail, and then our volunteer hand crews would step in and create the finished product. This looks to be the best combination of getting a trail soon with the funds we have available. First, though, we’ve got to find a trail builder.
Here’s our Skyline Bid Sheet; so far we’re in talks with Bellfree Contractors and Trailscape, both members of the Professional Trail Builders Association. Our goal is to decide on a contractor by October 22nd, and then we can make a good plan for how our volunteer hand crews (you and me!) and our professional trail builders will work together to design and craft a really…fun…trail.
If you have ideas, thoughts, or opinons on trail building contractors, please let us know.
