Ecology + Design

Now Offering Residential Trail Building | Westchester, Putnam, NY & Fairfield County, CT

Recently, we have had more requests from clients to design and build hiking trails on their property. Often these are estate clients, part of our Sustainable Stewardship Program, who have five acres or more of property. As part of their design program, we assess and analyze the property to determine siting for the trails. Sometimes we are working from existing, abandoned woodland trails and sometimes we start from scratch.

In constructing trails, we aim to repurpose material on-site as much as possible. For example, logs and boulders to line the trail, create steps, and water bars; dead trees on-site can be cut down and ground into woodchips to define the trail, in some instances. We are always factoring in stormwater and designing erosion control measures as part of our trail construction process.

Having accessible trails right out your backyard is an incredible amenity! Fresh air, nature, and exercise right at your fingertips! Make evening strolls with your family a tradition and notice together how the natural world around you is changing.
