In 2017, Hans Keifer, Owner of Bellfree Contractors a professional trail building company, came to Armenia as an international expert to help design the TCT and also to lead and train volunteers on the TCT trail project.
As an avid trail user himself, he saw so much potential and desperate need to develop the trail infrastructure throughout Armenia and Artsakh, and had the bright idea to start his own nonprofit TFC.
Hans recruited the TFC team from the enthusiastic and passionate local volunteers during the TCT project.
Since it's inception, TFC has partnered with 12 organizations, and developed 48 trails throughout Armenia and Artsakh, totaling over 620km of hiking and biking trails, with many more to come
TFC was started in September 2017
To develop the potential for outdoor recreation access and opportunities in Armenia and Artsakh.
