Four-Day TRAILS Class Begins Dec. 4

Nov 16, 2017

Spots are still available for the December 4-7 Basic skills training session – Sustainable, Trail Design and Layout, Construction, and Maintenance offered by Rockingham Community College as part of the Duke Energy TRAILS Program.

During this four-day, basic trail training session, participants will learn how to design, layout, construct, and maintain sustainable trails. Classroom teaching and experiential learning will be combined to help students understand the fundamentals of sustainable trails. Participants will begin by discussing the “trail experience” and the characteristics of sustainable trails. They will learn about the five essential elements of sustainable trails and how to incorporate them into trail layout and construction. The session will cover design, construction, and maintenance techniques that minimize the volume and velocity of water on the trail tread. It will guide participants from desktop trail planning to design and layout, corridor flagging, and pin flagging of a trail alignment in the field. Students will gain field experience constructing new trail reroutes and maintaining existing trails on the Rockingham Community College campus.
