Bear Mountain Stone Crib Wall Construction

This course is specifically open and free for those interested in getting involved or continuing being involved with the Bear Mountain Trails Project.     Learn when and how to construct stone crib walls (a centerpiece of the Bear Mountain Trails Project) to support a tread way or retain a hillside. In this workshop, attention will be paid to key design requirements such as achieving solid points of contact, batter, and eliminating running joints. Basic rock moving using picks and bars, and stone shaping with the use of hammers and chisels, will be incorporated into the course.
