Trail Services LLC
Workshop in Glacier National Park

I supply tools and supplies to build and maintain trails

I sell and service GriphoistŪ pulling and lifting machines, and rigging products are my specialty. These hand powered hoists utilize a pair of wire rope grips to pull a length of wire rope through the winch.

I also carry stone cutting, drilling and shaping tools as well as stone working hammers. My inventory includes Trow and Holden hand tools: carbide tipped chisels, hand points, hand sets and specialty stone hammers including rifters, bull sets and mash hammers. I have many other specialized items for nearly all trail building applications.

New The 2018 catalog page has a link to our catalog, which includes a list of trail construction tools, their use, and trail construction and maintenance

I provide training in trail building, maintenance and construction. I also provide guidance on designing new trails.

I have over 40 years experience in building trails, since 1990 I have taught nearly 200 trail skills workshops in 20 states.

Training workshops about trail rigging, stone cutting, and building stone trail structures can be taught in your area.
