we used to clear ATV trails with nothing but hatchets, machetes, hand saws, and clubs (just a thick, green tree branch used to knock down all of the dead branches in the way). having to go around stuff is part of the fun! also, having to go OVER stuff is also fun. we would make "whoop" sections using 12" logs about 3 feet apart. it made the straight, clear sections more interesting.
as far as doing it yourself... just invite some of your buddies over with the promise of letting them ride it when you guys get it done. i would help if someone asked me.
