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 includes a morning classroom session & an afternoon of on-trail instruction.
The West Coast of BC is famous for its stunts: ladder bridges, skinnies, drops and more. This course covers the design principles, trail standards, construction techniques, and assessment of wood technical trail features..
Date: Saturday, June 11th
Time: 9 AM – 4 PM (lunch provided)
New Trails: From Planning & Permissions to Construction & Creativity
Learn about the trail planning and design process, from working with land managers and established trail standards to create an appropriate trail experience for various user groups.
The Many Uses for Rock
Properly constructed rock work will outlast wood bridges, and perhaps even us. Learn how to use rock to armor the trail surface, build rock retaining walls, and other ways rock is beneficial in trail design & maintenance.
