Intro to Trail Maintenance Workshop

Harriman State Park
Kanawauke Picnic Area
Saturday, 5/4/24

Interested in becoming a volunteer Trail Maintainer? Take this workshop to get involved!

Trail maintenance is clearing, cleaning, and blazing. Trail Maintainers visit their trails 3 to 4 times each year to ensure the trails are clearly marked and free of obstacles to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all trail users.
This course helps you gain or brush up on the skills necessary to become a volunteer Trail Maintainer. Skills include using small hand tools to properly clip and clear the trail corridor, clean drainage structures, proper blazing techniques, and reporting trail conditions.

Event Details:

Meeting Location: The group will meet at the Kanawauke Picnic Area and car pool to the trailhead for the Victory Trail on Kanawauke Road. Parking at the trailhead can be very limited on a weekend day.
Time: 9AM-1PM
What to bring: Participants are welcome to bring their own PPE, smartphone with the Avenza Maps app downloaded, water, and snacks/lunch.
