The FVMBA Trail Workshops are back for Spring 2024!

Curious about what goes into building and caring for the trails? Looking to give back to the trails you enjoy? Or want to learn what enables a trail stand up to weather and high use? Join us to learn about caring for the trails and the environment! The FVMBA is hosting a series of Trail Building & Maintenance workshops; each course runs from 8:30 AM to 4 PM, with a morning classroom session & an afternoon of on-trail instruction.

While participants in the FVMBA Trail Steward Mentorship program are given priority access to registration, the workshops are open to all FVMBA members.
