Attendees will graduate from this 4-day class with a greater knowledge and understanding of
current trail design and construction techniques. Each day of the training will have a classroom
component and hands-on application. Attendance at all four days of the training is required. You’ll
be taught how to create natural (dirt) surface trails that:
 Minimize impact to resources
 Minimize maintenance
 Do not go beyond capacity of the land
 Keep users on the trail
Each day of the course builds upon the knowledge from the previous day. Day 1 covers trail
design and layout; Day 2, trail construction; Day 3, trail maintenance; and Day 4 is when you’ll put
it all together for practical application and obtain completion certificates. The training is free to
public trail volunteers and land managers. Cost for other attendees is $425. The 2013 trainings
will be held in Eau Claire, La Crosse, and Madison areas. For more information and to sign up through the DNR:
