Project summary: Trail planning, design, construction, training and leading

Project location: Armenia

Client: Transcaucasian Trail Organization

Project Completion Date: Ongoing

Project Details: The Transcaucasian Trail (TCT) is a long distance trail that will start at the Black Sea in Georgia and continue through Armenia and into Iran. In the spring of 2017 Bellfree Contractors was hired to help with the planning and design work of segments of the TCT in Armenia’s Dilijan National Park. In June construction began with volunteer crews trained and led by Bellfree Contractors.

By the end of 2017 approximately 80 km of trail was ready for hikers. This was a combination of  repaired old roads, old trails and newly constructed trails.

In 2018 work continued on the trail with new segments added in the Vayots Dzor region.

All segments in Dilijan can be found on the HikeArmenia web site and app. The new segments in Vayots Dzor will be added soon.

As part of the DR Horton housing development project trail improvements were made to an existing trail. We installed 5 Western Wood pedestrian bridges. Though not as remote as many of our other projects building these bridges proved to be a challenge. The longest bridge was 70′ long.
