WYOMING STATE PARKS

Trail Construction

PROJECT BRIEF: 

Wyoming State Parks Trail Construction
2006-2015

Building upon an established, successful relationship with Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites, and Trails, Singletrack Trails won the competitive bid to begin construction on 6 miles of new trail spanning Curt Gowdy and Glendo State Parks. This project was expanded to field flag 20 miles of proposed trail to be constructed during Phase 2 of Glendo State Park’s trail build plan.

In 2010, we completed the build using a combination of machine and hand construction techniques. In addition to the trail work, our crew supervised and worked alongside two Wyoming Conservation Crews for a total of four weeks.
