Trail Maintenance Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
Ever wonder how the trails stay open and passable? Where do those colored marks on the trees come from? Take this workshop to find out!

Trail Maintenance is clearing, cleaning, and blazing.  Trail maintainers use small hand tools to clip and cut brush out of the trail, remove debris from drainage structures, and paint or hang the markers used for route finding also known as blazes.

This course helps you gain or brush up on the skills necessary to a Trail Conference Trail Maintainer Volunteer.  Skills include how to clip trail corridor, clean drainage structures, proper blazing techniques, and reporting trail conditions.

Part of this course will be conducted outside on the trail, so be sure you wear your sturdy hiking boots and long pants and bring work gloves & eye protection if you have them!  Please also bring hand clippers, a lopper or handsaw if you have those as well.  Be sure to bring plenty of water and lunch/snacks for yourself.  The workshop will run rain or shine.
