2013 Trail Building Education Course

 2013 DNR Trail Training Courses Open for Registration
Attendees will graduate from this 4-day class with a greater knowledge and understanding of current trail design and construction techniques. Each day of the training will have a classroom component and hands-on application. Attendance at all four days of the training is required. You’ll be taught how to create natural (dirt) surface trails that:
        *  Minimize impact to resources
        *  Minimize maintenance
        *  Do not go beyond capacity of the land
        *  Keep users on the trail
Each day of the course builds upon the knowledge from the previous day. Day 1 covers trail design and layout; Day 2, trail construction; Day 3, trail maintenance; and Day 4 is when you’ll put it all together for practical application and obtain completion certificates. The training is free to public trail volunteers and land managers. Cost for other attendees is $425. The 2013 trainings will be held in Eau Claire, La Crosse, and Madison areas.
