Curry Ridge Trail Design-Build, 2015-2016 Interior Trails completed this multi-stage project in Denali State Park as part of the new Kesugi Ken Visitor Complex. IT designed and built a 2 mile, 4' wide hiking trail from the new trailhead to tree line, with a 2 ton mini- excavator (and lots of hand finishing). IT subcontracted the first dozer-cut to Jon Underwood, of Happy Trails, Inc., who brought his skills and Sutter 500 down from Fairbanks. Additionally, IT designed another mile in the sub-alpine area that was built by hand by the Denali State Park trail crew.
Upper Troublesome Creek Assessment, Prescription, Design & Layout, 2011-2012 IT designed FEMA funded reroutes in response to catastrophic trail washouts from severe flooding. Work included assessing trail to be retained or rerouted, along with detailed 50' Stationing w/ Construction Notes for hand built trail, including multiple structures & creek crossings, for 9 miles of rugged backcountry trail.
Mt. Baldy Trail, Municipality of Anchorage, Eagle River Assessment, Prescription, Design & Layout, 2014 This popular trail, sometimes called the "Flattop of Eagle River", was being loved to death. IT's design rerouted the worst sections of erosion and degradation using switchbacks and climbing turns. IT provided detailed stationing & construction notes for an SCA field crew to construct trail, as well as recommendations for State Park crews to continue improvements.
