This one-day, outdoor training session covers an introduction to the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference and provides the skills necessary to maintain a hiking trail so it is easily passable and harmonious with its surroundings.

Through field work, students will learn assessment of trail conditions, clearing, blazing proper use of tools and how to report any trail problems they may come across on their segment of trail.

Be prepared to spend the day on the trail. Wear your hiking boots; pack plenty of water; bring work gloves; and bring lunch.

 

No previous experience is necessary and all are welcome to attend to learn about the Trail Conference.
