Singletrack Trails employs a dedicated team of trail builders and specialists with decades of cumulative experience as conservation corps and volunteer crew leaders. Because of their love for trails and the outdoors, Singletrack Trails staff understands how to build memorable trail experiences. As a result, our staff creates what they would want to experience themselves; a reflection of their dedication to trails and their love for the outdoors.


Greg Mazu

Chief Encouragement Officer

Singletrack Trails was Greg’s gateway to becoming a serial entrepreneur. Since 2004, Greg has significantly impacted six different ventures. Through that time, he has focused to grow Singletrack Trails’ revenues, onboard key staff members, and continue to generate a great product on the ground. Challenging the glass ceiling that the trails industry has commonly accepted, Greg finally shifted his focus with the company as an owner-operator to the Chief Encouragement Officer in 2016. Through that time, revenues have doubled, staff size has doubled, a full-time business development staff has been added, and additional revenue streams have been created. Greg has shifted Singletrack Trails from a boutique trail construction company to a multi-faceted outdoor recreation development firm.

James Flatten

Chief Project Wrangler

James Flatten joined the Singletrack Trails crew in 2007.  As the Chief Trail Supervisor, he is now responsible for ensuring that projects are completed on time and exceed expectations.  His career as a dirt shaper was packed into prominence as the Lead Course Designer and Chief Builder for the Ranchstyle Mountain Bike Festival near Grand Junction, Colorado. Knowing how to build competition courses for the 1% of mountain bikers, as well as extrapolating that knowledge to build dirt jumps, pump tracks, and rhythm trails for the 95%, is James’ specialty.  He has been adding the “free” to freeride trails since 2002. With James on the project and in charge of dirt shaping, everyone will be happy.

Aaron continued his passion for trail construction after moving to Fort Collins, CO to attend Colorado State University. He joined the Singletrack Trails to pursue a career in the outdoor recreation industry and has been essential in the growth and expansion of the services offered by Singletrack Trails.


Chris Khare "Shrimper"

Southeast Project Wrangler

One Man.  One Name.  One Urban Legend.


Shrimper -The Oracle of Brevard joined the Singletrack Trails team in 2019.  Not afraid to harness the gnarness of Pisgah National Forest, Shrimper brings decades of knowledge and experience to our team.  The years of mastering trail and laying down the law with the rough and rugged in the worst the Southeast has to offer makes him a terrific resource and addition.  Shrimper is the lead arm of our North Carolina division but we do try to get him out west into the mountains and desert whenever we can.  When Shrimper isn’t wrangling trail, he’s usually out wrangling his pups, the 2 legged and 4 legged variety.  He’ll also be found roaming the woods on his bike and keeping an eye on the Pisgah and making sure life isn’t taken too seriously.
