Construction & Maintenance
Trails Unlimited can provide mechanized trail construction services
for the non-motorized and motorized trail manager. We know there
are many primitive-skills trail organizations and groups who can
fill the needs of Designated Wilderness, Primitive and very narrow
24” or less trail needs. What Trails Unlimited strives to
meet are the needs of OTHER trails which can be constructed and
maintained with mechanized equipment. We have access to the latest
mechanized trail tools such as: SWECO trail machine, Mini excavators,
Drags/rock rakes, Hydraulic breakers & drivers, Pneumatic cutters,
saws & loppers. The mechanized equipment has allowed Trails
Unlimited to improve on retaining wall installations, drainage
structures and hardened turns (Switchbacks & climbing turns).
- COST -
Construction cost vary so widely it is impossible to provide accurate
cost estimates here. But the range of cost per mile have been from
$2,500 to $12,000 per mile for new construction.
Trails Unlimited has provided maintenance at a range of $2,500 to $6,000 per mile, higher costs per mile for very heavy maintenance
where structures (retaining walls & drains) were involved.
Along with providing Construction and Maintenance services, Trails
Unlimited also offers the unique opportunity to teach and train
the local agency personnel in trail and structure construction
and/or maintenance techniques while completing the budgeted project.
In this manner, we are able to capture the proverbial "two
birds with one stone"
