TrailScapes Pty Ltd is an international trail building company based in Adelaide, South Australia which specialises in the planning, design, building and maintenance of sustainable trails. They provide a comprehensive range of trail design, construction and assessment services nationally and internationally through our experienced team of professional trail builders and consultants.

Our vision is to lead the way in trail design and trail building throughout Australia and beyond, and our innovative trail designs focus on integrating and enhancing the existing environment in a sustainable and durable manner, with minimal effect on the local flora and fauna.

We design and build all types of trails, including 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-Used trails that benefit all kinds of users.

The Trail Collective is a rider owned and operated company that brings together the experience and skills of professional, like-minded individuals to create global scale dirt trails, BMX play spaces, bike parks and pump tracks tailored for a variety of bike disciplines.

Based in Adelaide, South Australia, with over a combined experience of 30 plus years, The Trail Collective and its members have a deeply forged culture and a strong passion for setting the standard of recreational spaces within the BMX industry.

Our dedicated team works with local government and councils as well as private clients to create spaces with an educated and professional approach, ultimately creating the best standard of space, no matter the scale or direction.


Outdoor recreational activity is becoming an ever increasing issue, particularly amongst society’s young people. Participation rates in traditional team sports are declining and State and Local Governments are looking for new ways to deliver a means to increase community activity.

In contrast, action sports in Australia have seen a dramatic increase in numbers, with participation rates showing no sign of slowing down.

Engaging participants has become an important focal point for decision makers, imperative that new projects are undertaken with a long term vision for the future of youth recreation.

With the education behind active and healthy lifestyle choices and obesity prevention, a Trail Collective project is a creative approach to developing a unique and popular recreational community space.
