Our main goal with tread construction is to create a trail surface that keeps water off the trail and people on it resulting in sustainable trail systems.
This course helps you gain or brush up on techniques to construct a sustainable trail and perform tread maintenance to keep the trail in good shape. These techniques include sidehill trail construction, utilizing sustainable grades, and implementing/restoring natural drainage features to shed water off the trail.
