Trail Maintenance Workshop

Ever wonder how the trails stay open and passable? Where do those colored marks on the trees come from? Take this workshop to find out!

Trail Maintenance is clearing, cleaning, and blazing.  Trail maintainers use small hand tools to clip and cut brush out of the trail, remove debris from drainage structures, and paint or hang the markers used for route finding also known as blazes.

This course helps you gain or brush up on the skills necessary to a Trail Conference Trail Maintainer Volunteer.  Skills include how to clip trail corridor, clean drainage structures, proper blazing techniques, and reporting trail conditions.

Part of this course will be conducted outside on the trail, so be sure you wear your sturdy hiking boots and bring work gloves if you have them!  Be sure to bring plenty of water and lunch/snacks for yourself.  The workshop will run rain or shine.
