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. All you need to bring are sturdy shoes, weather-appropriate clothing, and enough water/snacks/lunch to comfortably make it through the day.
