Alta specializes in the design of urban and rural trails providing a complete package of services, including  design through 100% plans (full PS&Es), planting and irrigation plans, civil engineering, striping and signage, specifications, signage design (maps, interpretive, and wayfinding), alternatives analysis, and environmental documentation. This full service approach means that our plans address implementation challenges and define actionable next steps. Implementation of a planned facility can be the most challenging aspect of a trail project. Easements, permits, funding and construction issues require an experienced team. Alta offers not only planning and design but also construction documents and construction administration. Our staff includes registered engineers and landscape architects with experience negotiating easements, securing required permits, and working with contractors.
