Trail Skills Training

As so much of the trail in our area is high maintenance due to poor trail design, training volunteers and park staff in best practices is essential to maximize the efficiency of their time spent. The Rolling Grade Dip is a water diversion concept that has been around for years, and is gradually replacing the water bar as a more sustainable feature.

I have lead volunteer training classes and crew trips building scores of SET (Sustainable, Effective,Traversable) rolling grade dips, as well as tread and trail structure construction.
