Tread & Drainage Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
Ever wonder why some trails are more eroded than others? Ever felt like the trail you were following was a stream bed? Take this workshop to find out!

Trail Conference staff working on tread and drainage at the Catskill Interpretive Center.Tread and drainage is creating a pathway surface that keeps water off the trail and people on it resulting in sustainability. 

This course helps you gain or brush up on techniques to keep a trail from becoming a gulley.  These techniques include sidehill trail construction, utilizing sustainable grades, and ways to shed water off the trail.  Drainage structures such as dips, knicks, swales, and waterbars and their construction are also a focus of this topic.

Many thanks to The Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation (PCLB) whos contributions made this workshop possible and also to the Westchester Land Trust who owns the O'Connelll Boulder Field Preserve where this workshop will be held.
