Now Hiring for the 2023 Season
The DB Trailblazers team is out on the trails, building and maintaining custom private trail systems and back country hang out spaces throughout Grey County, Ontario.
The properties we work on range from 1 acre to over 200 acres, creating exciting experiences for our clients by carving adventure into the landscape.
We ATV and hike in to access backcountry locations using a mix of hand tools and machinery.

We work outside in all safe conditions. This can mean hot in the summer and wet when it's raining. The right team members for the job enjoy the outdoors and can thrive in a variety of backcountry conditions.
