Sinuosity was founded by Brooke Scatchard in 2006 to support his trail design and mapping ventures. Brooke grew up in Vermont and began exploring trails on bikes and skis at a very young age. He developed a passion for mountain bike racing as a teenager and has ridden many of the top trail networks in America. He has also competed in long-distance mountain bike races across Costa Rica and British Colombia. Vermont’s snowy winters provide great skiing opportunities and also inspired Brooke to construct custom inventions for snow biking.
Brooke has been designing and building trails since 1998, completing multiple trail projects and partnering with a range of organizations. He has volunteered extensively with the Fellowship of the Wheel mountain bike club since its inception in 2001 and served as the Fellowship’s Trail Director from 2008 to 2010. A degree in Geography from the University of Vermont enables the application of advanced knowledge and technology to his trail and map projects.
His many years of experience in planning, building, riding, and skiing provide a wealth of knowledge regarding all aspects of trail development and maintenance. Brooke’s depth of experiences enable Sinuosity to provide trail assessments, sustainable trail design, conceptual and master planning, community education, management of volunteer construction groups, trail construction management, GIS map creation, and maintenance plan development.
Mariah Keagy joined Sinuosity in 2013 to assist with Trail Design and Planning. Mariah began her 16 years of involvement in trail construction and reconstruction in the Green Mountains of Vermont in 1996. She has extensive knowledge of multi-use trail design and management and diverse experience in natural resources, specializing in the New England landscape. Before returning to Vermont in 2010, Mariah worked throughout the U.S. learning about multi-use trails (hike, bike, motorized, pack and saddle, ski, and water) from the Everglades in Florida to the Chugach in Alaska. She returned to New England as the Trails Supervisor for the Appalachian Mountain Club, where she managed the White Mountain trails and developed a contract crew, designing and building trails throughout New England. She has a M.S. in Environmental Studies from Antioch New England and currently serves as a Regional Representative on the Vermont Trails and Greenways Council, is a member of the Green Mountain Club’s Trail Management Committee, and is an adjunct instructor of “Tools and Their Applications” at Sterling College.
