Introduction to Trail Maintenance Second Sundays at Spillian

The Trail Conference's Second Sundays at Spillian series continues with a free workshop on the basics of trail maintenance in the Catskills. This workshop will provide participants 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 plenty of water and bring work gloves. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.  Please register below so we can maintain an accurate headcount for the event.
