We've included a tentative agenda below to help you plan your stay and assist you in selecting which mobile workshops in which you may wish to participate. Some highlights of the concurrent sessions include:

Accessibility: A series of sessions have been programmed to bring you up to date on the Americans with Disability Act and the impact of the regulatory process on trail design, construction, and management. Sessions will range from reviewing the status of regulations, to exploring design guidelines, to highlighting case studies.

Trail Construction: Our emphasis on learning the art and science of trail construction continues with indoor classroom sessions.

Skill-Building: These sessions emphasize the nuts and bolts. If you are new to trails or need a refresher, these are the go back to school sessions. Learn about how to pull off great events, become a stronger local advocate, get more funding, build community support and much more.

Planning and Developing Trails: Join us for a series of panel discussions where you can ask all your questions about planning and implementing trails. These sessions will also cover the latest innovations in developing trails.
