Sustainable Trail Assessment, Permitting, and Contracting

Participants will learn how to take a critical look at trails to assess condition, maintenance, and safety. The session will also cover potential permitting requirements and trail contracting for natural surface sustainable trail projects. Students will discuss how trail condition, maintenance, and safety can affect the "trail experience", and they will also learn and discuss how the interpretation of assessment results may vary depending on user group and trail difficulty. Participants will complete desktop trail reviews, assess existing trails and proposed reroutes on the Rockingham Community College campus, discuss permits, and create contracts based on assessment results.
