    New trail development. I need help!

    I have the opportunity to submit a plan and build trails for the relatively small City of Center, in East Texas, but we could offer some of the best riding for the eastern half of the state! I've been told that approval and building could happen as early as this November.

    I know that I need experienced help with this.
    Does anyone know of trail building consultants that I could contact?

    The city Manager and Council are are stoked about the idea of having trails and are even excited about the possibility of holding race events!

    Any contact information for trail building consultants or tips on resource material would be greatly appreciated!

    Contact Tony Boone with Anasazi Trails out of CO. He has an office in San Antonio and built Bar H in St. Jo among many, many other trails.

    Greg Mazu out of (I think) Grand Junction with Singletrack Trails is another solid contractor.

    There's no one in TX as good as these guys.

    If I was told correctly, I regularly enjoy trails that you have planned! I got word that you were consulted when the SFA trails in Nacogdoches went from outlaw trails to public ones.

    In fact, I was told to contact you!

    Yep, I assessed the trails at SFA & did some design work. We also built the section then called the Scooby Bowl.

    I'm building trails in WI for Trek Bicycle.

    Thank you for the info! Just curious, how do you know about them? I see that they did Huntsville State Park, which I'd like to ride soon.

    ah, if you look, S&S are the people who are doing Cassels-Boykin in Angelina County. Not sure how much time that project is occupying for them, but they'd be worth a call since they'd be aware of the local conditions.
