Customized Trail Design Workshop (Pre-Conference)

Customized Trail Design Workshop (Pre-Conference)

Dates: Sunday, March 17 and Monday, March 18 (8 am - 5 pm)
Cost: $380
Instructor: Troy Scott Parker, Natureshape LLC (PTBA Member)

This hands-on, small group workshop is the next best thing to a custom trail design workshop on your own site. We'll be in the field for all of both days; NO classroom time. Emphasis is on identifying problems and generating context-appropriate solutions, optimizing trails and sites, learning to work with trails as seasoned trail experts do, i.e., intuitively, structurally, and aesthetically at the same time, and shaping lively, wonderful, fun, and sustainable natural surface trails for any type of use you want to work with (hike, bike, horse, accessible, OHV, etc.)
