Design and Planning
Destination trails are the result of excellent planning. Rogue Trails strives to find the balance between user experiences, land manager concerns, and sustainability. Whether your project is a backcountry trail system, an urban bike park, or an expansion of a pre-existing trail system, Rogue Trails is ready to start the design process.
1. Vision and Objectives
We like to start by clearly identifying your objectives for the project. We want to work with you to help achieve those objectives.
2. Feasibility Study
Once we have a clear understanding of what you want, we will assess your land and audit your pre-existing trails to evaluate the feasibility of the project.
3. Community Engagement
Engaging your community can help steer the direction of the project, foster buy-in from landowners and stakeholders, and ensure all user groups are heard from.
4. Advocacy and Funding
Fund raising is a critical piece of trail development. We can help you navigate various sources of funding and provide tools that help ensure you're successful in acquiring support.
5. Master Planning
Master Plans are your comprehensive resource for information about your trail project. They are also an invaluable tool for garnering support and funding.
3. Groundtruth and Flagging
We believe the most important tool during the planning process is a good pair of boots. We groundtruth our trails to ensure they achieve our objectives without sacrificing sustainability.
