Introduction to Trail Maintenance

Trail U for Land Trusts, generously supported by the Peter and Carmen Luica Buck Foudation. To sign up for this Trail U for Land Trust Program, please contact John Leigh at (201)-512-9348 X 822 This workshop will provide Land Trust employees and their volunteers with the skills necessary to properly clear, maintain and improve a hiking trail so it is easily passable for fellow hikers and the trail itself is harmonious with the environment. Through field work, students will learn assessment of trail conditions, clearing, trail marking, proper use of tools and how to report any trail problems they may come across on their segment of trail.  Be prepared to spend a few hours on the trails around the area as part of the field training. Make sure to wear your hiking boots dress appropriately for the outdoor conditions and trail work pack a lunch, plenty of water and bring work gloves and your own hand tools if you have them.
