The IMBA Canada Trail Building and Assessment Clinic is the perfect trail training opportunity for volunteers and trail managers!
Trail Building School will provide a strong foundation in Sustainable Trail Theory, Design and Construction techniques and is used by organizations across Canada such as; Parks Canada, BC Parks, Ontario Parks and other municipal organizations, clubs and groups. Utilizing proven techniques, participants will learn concepts related to trails including: The Half Rule, Grade Reversals and Outsloping, User Management for Multi-Use Trails, Trail Construction and Maintenance Techniques and more. This course is broken down into a 4 hour in-class theory portion, followed by an afternoon field portion where participants will work on a piece of trail using the techniques discussed in class. The Assessment component will look at different uses and needs of fat-biking, gravel, hiking trails, mountain bike, off-road and multi-use trails. Includes analysis and learning on IMBA Canada's Trail Assessment guidelines created with the Parks Canada Trail Rating and Assessment system, and participants will go through a trail assessment (trail tread, user experience, sustainability, recommendations etc.).
