Design. Build. Activate.

Avid Trails is one of America’s top trail companies for community developers and municipalities.

If you want a great trail system,
put your best foot forward.

Your residents want a great trail system, and they don’t just mean a few sidewalks. Avid Trails are designed for walkers, bikers and runners of all ages and abilities. We’re also the first rated, branded and marketed trail system available to real estate developers, brought to you by one of America’s top trails companies. Whether you have 10 acres or 10,000, give us a call and find out how Avid Trails can help put your project on the map.

Trail system planning and design.

Well before we place a blade in the ground, an Avid Trail system starts with thoughtful planning and design. We interview ownership and stakeholders, study the land, and most important, we take great care to understand who will be using the trails and how they’ll be used. We call it user-based design. The result is a trails master plan tailored specifically for your current and future residents and visitors.

Trail construction and maintenance.

Our team has over 25 years of experience building trails in some of the most challenging places in America. We have expertise in a wide variety of surface types, including natural, crushed stone, stabilized DG, recycled millings, even rubberized surfaces. We have a keen eye for grade and drainage, and every foot of trail is built observing those two critical factors. Our goal is for every Avid Trail to be beautiful to look at, a pleasure to use, and able to hold up to a heavy load of hiking boots, bike tires, and weather.

Avid Fitness Stations.

It’s probably no surprise that we’re fitness nuts. And while you can get a great workout walking or running an Avid Trail, we thought it would be fun to take it up a notch. So we created Avid Stations to add an extra level of fun and challenge along some of our most popular trails. Designed for group workouts, Avid Stations are perfect for bootcamps, circuits, and personal training. You may never want to step foot inside a gym again.

Avid Bike Parks and Pump Tracks.

It’s hard to find an amenity that offers more family fun than an Avid Bike Park. Our parks are designed for all ages and abilities, from toddlers with training wheels to thrill-seeking grandparents and everyone in between. You’ll find features and obstacles that build skills, fun and physical pump tracks, and a family-friendly environment that will keep you smiling for hours at a time.

Signage and wayfinding.

We know our way around a map, and how to get you where you want to go. We offer complete signage and wayfinding systems for your new or existing trail network. We create beautifully rendered trail maps for stuffing in your daypack or displaying in your Welcome Center. From soup to nuts, we design and produce all sorts of signage including mileage markers, directionals, interpretive graphics, and trail head kiosks and pavilions.

Programming and activation.

Our job doesn’t stop when a trail is completed. We can also help ensure your trails are popular, active and fun. Need a bootcamp instructor? How about an Adventure Race? Or perhaps a social media campaign to show the world how awesome your community trails are. Our unique team of marketers, project managers, designers and social media experts can really get your trails off on the right foot.

Catering to MPC developers.

We understand the particular needs – and challenges – of building trails in master planned communities. We have deep experience navigating entitlements, public / private use, environmental conditions, construction phasing, HOAs, and the like. We work directly with the development team, land planners, civils and LAs to seamlessly integrate trails into the overall master plan. We also work hard to deliver a fit and finish that is appropriate to your upscale community. We’re proud to be full members of the Urban Land Institute.
