Ken Barker has been building and riding trails for decades and as a result gained vast experiential knowledge. His travels have taken him, along with friends and family, to first rate trails across North America, deepening his belief that quality trails are a conduit for outdoor appreciation and building community. Ken has a passion for the exceptional trail experience and understands the value this can bring to communities everywhere.
Ken’s professional experiences outside of trail development have been predominantly in the field of education, where innovation and collaboration are a must. During his 18 year tenure as an educator, Ken has led teams of teachers in designing and executing student-centered educational programming.
As a trail builder, Ken Barker has an unwavering commitment to quality and sustainability, noting that, “Building mountain bike trails is an art form. Trail concepts and design best practices are based in science, with new techniques continually evolving; however, the final result is truly a work of art. This merging of science and creativity contributes to unique and exciting trail experiences. I strongly believe these sorts of trails should be within striking distance of every home.”
