Our main goal with tread construction is to create a trail surface that keeps water off the trail and people on it resulting in sustainable trail systems.
This course helps you gain or brush up on techniques to construct a sustainable trail and perform tread maintenance to keep the trail in good shape. These techniques include sidehill trail construction, utilizing sustainable grades, and implementing natural drainage features to shed water off the trail.
