Introduction to Trail Maintenance

Find out if this volunteer position is what you would like to do at Introduction to Trail Maintenance, a class offered by volunteers of the New York-Jersey Trail Conference.   This three hour class provides the skills necessary to maintain a hiking trail so it is easily passable and harmonious with its surroundings. Participants 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 for changeable weather.    Wear your hiking boots and work gloves - bring water and a bag lunch. If you have garden clippers, loppers or pruning saws, please bring them.   Location directions will be given upon registration.
