Who We Are

We have a passion for trails


Linear Active offers a comprehensive set of services to plan, create and maintain natural surface trails. As true trail professionals we carry comprehensive insurance to protect ourselves and our clients and we maintain all licensing and bonding requirements for the jurisdictions we work in.

Our staff and their talents are rooted in a personal connection to the outdoors. When we're not working to plan and create great trails we are likely spending our free time on them. Whether trail running, mountain biking, bird watching, fishing or backpacking, we have a deep bond with the trails that connect us to each other and the greater natural world.

Ben Appleby, founder of Linear Active LLC, matches his passion for trails with years of experience in construction and project management. He has a BA in Environmental Studies, Masters in Public Administration- Planning & Development and has completed certifications and training opportunities offered by the United States Forest Service, International Mountain Bike Association and Professional Trailbuilders Association.
