 Leveling riding trails through pasture.

I want to create some riding trials through some old field and woods. The land is clear but rough. What type of equipment do I need to create flat, smooth right trails, a box scraper? rear blade? soil pulverizer? or what?

I'd vote for the box scraper. They are reasonably priced & can loosen & move dirt.

 Leveling riding trails through pasture.

In leu of a Caterpillar 613 scrapper and a 120 grader, I would also choose the box scrapper. What I'm saying is, it might be cheaper to have a earthmover smooth out a path, but if you like the work I would do it myself.I put in a 1/2 mile of road and used the heavy equipment, which only took a day, but if I was using a tractor and box grader, I guess I might have finished it in one season.John

 Leveling riding trails through pasture.

I maintain about 70-80 miles of trails, for various customers of my landscaping business. After about 15 years of doing so let me offer some advice, for what it is worth. If the ground is not too rough, or rocky, don't do any more than necessary, the more you work it, the more it will erode after rains or snow-melt. If the land was pasture land, all you wan't to do is provide a level, safe footing for the horses. We use a "Land Pride" pulverizer, the box-blade will work, especially if you have scarifier teeth (ripping shanks) but it is far more work than you need/want to do.........TRUST ME!!!! Just rip up the top layer of sod and topsoil with the pulverizer, you will remove any rocks in the process, and be done in a quarter of the time. After all as much fun as a tractor is to drive, the horse is more fun, so save yourself some time and aggravation. Good Luck.
