TrailScapes Pty Ltd


TrailScapes Pty Ltd provide a complete range of trail design, construction and assessment services through our experienced team of professional trail builders and consultants.


We design and construct all types of trails; including, but not limited to, International Standard Mountain Bike Parks, Competition and Recreational Mountain Bike trails, Recreational Walking and Horse-riding trails, BMX, Dirt jump and Pump tracks, and Shared Use trails.

Our trail designs incorporate world-class features, such as rock armouring to improve durability and longevity of your trail, technical trail features for more challenging courses and innovative drainage solutions. We also provide natural trail surfacing and re-surfacing services.

We also design, construct and install a complete range of structural elements, including shelters, bridges and boardwalks. Our trail structures not only enhance trail aesthetics, but also greatly improve user access. In addition, we can also install specially designed Phytophthora stations to help prevent the spread of plant-damaging pathogens.


TrailScapes provide comprehensive and objective auditing services to completely evaluate your trail project from A to Z. Our audits include Project Feasibility Reports, GPS mapping services, Risk Management audits, Signage consultation and General trail audits to assess problematic areas such as drainage and also provide an insight into the demographics of current trail users and their frequency of use.

We also provide specialised auditing services for Council municipalities. We can assess your BMX facilities, Dirt Jump areas or Pump track on a one-time or regular basis to evaluate safety or maintenance issues. Our concise reports will help you decide on a course of action to correct any problems before they become public liabilities.


TrailScapes also conducts volunteer training programs.

TrailScapes provides Trail Building courses to volunteer groups, Mountain Bike clubs, government departments and anyone who wants to learn how to build and maintain trails for hiking or mountain biking.

We customise the course to each individual client’s requirements. Some times, the course might be in a classroom setting with mainly theory and PowerPoint presentations and other times, the course is very hands-on and student learn to use tools and machinery. It all depends on the amount of experience the group has prior to starting the course. Garry Patterson is a friendly and approachable instructor with a wealth of experience and knowledge he likes to share.
