Alta has worked on more greenway and trail projects than any other firm in North America. Our experience in planning, designing, and implementing trails and greenways has allowed us to work in hundreds of client communities and a broad spectrum of projects. Our services include complete trail master planning, visioning, alternatives analysis, and project design, as well as developing environmental documentation, property acquisition strategies, accurate cost estimates, maintenance plans, management plans, and funding strategies.
Alta’s Trails and Greenways Services include:
Rails to Trails
Rail corridors are a natural fit for bicycle and pedestrian travel, having gradual grades and separated crossings, as well as scenic landscapes between population centers.
Soft Surface Trails
Alta plans and designs natural surface trails that safely accommodate hikers, equestrians, and mountain bicyclists, while simultaneously protecting and promoting appreciation for sensitive resources.
Our experience spans a wide range of environments from urban to rural including sensitive natural resource areas, parks, rail and utility corridors, street rights-of-way, and suburban and industrial settings.
