To sign up for this Trail U for Land Trust Program, please contact John Leigh at (201)-512-9348 X 822 Learn what it takes to create an enjoyable and durable trail for hikers. Topics covered include trail planning, soils, grades, hydrological relationships, and trail alignments, as well as trail experience concepts such as users' expectations, gateways, anchors, and trail flow. Students will learn to understand the humanity in a trail: what makes one trail more enjoyable and satisfying than another. After discussing and analyzing existing trails, participants will have the opportunity to help design a new trail segment.
