Trail Maintenance Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
Are you interested in becoming a Trail Maintainer? Attend this workshop to learn how to maintain a trail!

Join our volunteers to gain or brush up on the skills necessary to become a volunteer Trail Maintainer! 

Trail maintainers visit their trails 3 to 4 times each year to ensure the trails are clearly marked and free of obstacles to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all trail users.

This involves using small hand tools to clip and cut brush out of the trail, removing debris from drainage structures, painting or hanging trail markers, and reporting on the conditions of the trail.

A prerequisite of attending this workshop is to watch our Trail Maintenance Webinar. The webinar covers many of the basic concepts behind trail maintainance and this workshop will build upon those concepts by putting them into practice.

After we go over the basics of trail maintenance, you will get a chance to practice maintaining a trail!

  • Glasses or sunglasses for eye protection
