My mom took me on my first trail construction project when I was 10 days old in 1983. I have been professionally involved with my parents on all levels of the family business since the mid 1990’s.
Daryl Hoyt and Krista Thie founded Twin Oaks Construction in 1979 and are still active in our trail design & trail building business today.
We strive for quality, collaboration and maintaining a safe working environment on all our trail projects. We look forward to working with you on your trail stairs, outdoor stairs or trail construction project.
We have owned acreage in the Columbia River Gorge for a number of years. Most of the property was inaccessible due to a steep, rocky, wooded slope that dropped to a stream. We originally approached Twin Oaks about rebuilding an old, treacherous trail over the embankment. However, after meeting with Avery and Daryl and showing them our property, they presented us with a design for a trail that was vastly superior to our idea, would provide better access to the previously inaccessible area and would be safer. They started the project on schedule and stuck with the job through completion. They kept us informed about their progress, consulted with us on problems that arose due to the rugged terrain and had solutions for every difficulty. They are highly skilled, reliable, professional, environmentally sensitive and cost conscious. We are absolutely thrilled with the result and look forward to working with them in the future as we add to the network of trails on our property.
The Portland Japanese Garden had the pleasure to work with Avery and Twin Oaks Trails and Design in the fall of 2017 for the creation of a difficult trail spur segment. The terrain for the trail was very challenging and required much hard work, but Avery and his crew were very accommodating to our needs. Every interaction with Twin Oaks was professional and sincere; their customer service and communication was clear and honest making the process very smooth. The final built product absolutely satisfies our expectations and will be a wonderful addition to the community of trail users around the Garden!
Working with Twin Oaks Trails on several projects has been a very positive experience. Avery is very easy to work with and made some innovative design suggestions that made our project fit within our budget. The Hoyt family take so much pride in their trails and come by whenever they are in the neighborhood to see how their work is holding up. I recommend Twin Oaks Trails to anyone.
I was on the stairs you built for us recently with my son watching the sunset. What a wonderful job you and your company did on our property. You guys are top of the top in my book. Thank you from me and my family and many friends and family members in the future. Working with you has been a very good experience. You are a cool guy and a man of honor as shown in your work and our discussions.
Twin Oaks is a top-notch trail contractor and we appreciate the years of experience they brought to our team. They completed their project on time and on budget, all the while providing great customer service.
The good folks at Twin Oaks were a joy to work with. They are amazing crafts people, excellent teachers, and great problem-solvers! Their leadership has created a bridge that the Professional Trailbuilders Association and the Oregon State Parks will be proud of for decades.
