Presidio Coastal Trail (Completed Spring 2012)

About Us

At Campbell Grading Inc., we are privileged to work in some of the most beautiful and sensitive areas in California. Our projects are orchestrated in backcountry settings to heavily trafficked urban areas. Our focus on all projects, from habitat restoration to trail design and construction, is to protect the essence of these treasured spaces and ensure their continued use for generations to come.

  

When Campbell Grading, Inc. employees were asked what it is they enjoy about their job, all employees voiced that they enjoy the small size of the company. This allows the employees to work closely with Barth Campbell as well as enjoy the company of their fellow coworkers. In addition, our employees enjoy the locations that they get the opportunity to work in and partaking in the transformation of these sites from start to finish.
