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 20 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). When he is not spending time on the trail he is outside on adventures with his family and also volunteers with local community groups.
