Boulder Buster video

Watch one of the more dramatic trail maintenance and reconstruction tools: the Boulder Buster. It uses water and a shotgun cartridge to quickly break rocks. It’s much cheaper and easier than having to get a certified blaster on site!

We’re looking for you to help! Join us in our volunteer program.

Thanks to Ryan Kuehn for the work and the video!
