About Us

Great Lakes Trailbuilders LLC was started in 2008 to bring a low impact and environmentally friendly approach to trailbuilding and design to the midwest.  Willie Bittner started working on trails 14 years ago with the Wisconsin DNR and over the years he has worked from coast to coast building trails and teaching the different methods and styles to volunteer groups, conservation corps and state agencies. 








Willie currently lives in La Crosse, WI near the Mississippi River (the photo on the right). He also works as the Operations Director at WisCorps (a Wisconsin based conservation corps for youth and young adults) and volunteering with local community groups.
