Title: The Devil is in the Details: Common Trail Design Mistakes & How to Avoid Them
Date: Thursday, September 20, 2018
Time: 10:00am-11:30am Pacific (1:00pm-2:30pm Eastern)
Price: $19 members / $39 nonmembers
Learning credits: Included in registration (learn more)
The goal of this webinar is to teach planners, landscape architects, engineers, and trail committee volunteers a variety of best practices for trail design. Hard surfaced trails are not as easy to design as they seem.
This webinar is designed for professionals who have a novice to intermediate level of trail planning or design experience. It focuses on new construction or rehabilitation of hard surface trails (asphalt, concrete, crushed stone, etc.) for bicycling, walking, ADA accessibility, or multiple uses. However, many of the design techniques discussed also apply to natural surface trails.
