This class is based the curriculum developed by the Pacific Crest Trail Association in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service developed by the Pacific Crest Trail Association and U.S. Forest Service Trails Specialist John Schubert.


This class is for curious trail workers who want to understand why so many trails are in bad shape because of how they were made.  Learn how better design and layout makes trails more sustainable and less prone to erosion.


Introduction to different trail design standards appropriate for different kinds of trails. This class is for anybody interested in these topics, but students with some trail building and maintenance experience will benefit the most.

First we will discuss Trail Planning, then Trail Layout, then Flagging.  The afternoon portion of this class is a field exercise using clinometers and flagging a hypothetical new trail.
