A part of the American Trails Advancing Trails Webinar Series, Fundamentals of Mountain Trail Sustainability is the second of a series of three on Sustainable Mountain Trails. Parts 2 and 3 will teach you to apply these principles to a trail network “One Trail at a Time, One Mile at a Time.” The course includes tools and techniques, examples, and case studies of mountain trail sustainability.

Each webinar in this series is independent of each other and can be attended individually.

These webinars are applicable to all natural surface trail systems. Please see the following link to the presenter’s hallmark document: Guide to Sustainable Mountain Trails – Trail Assessment, Planning, & Design Sketchbook, 2007 edition.

  2. Attendees will be presented with interdisciplinary team tools and techniques being used at Rocky that are transparent, engage the resource management staff, engage the compliance and management staffs and provide the basis for minimum impact to natural and cultural resources, and sound decision-making while helping to prioritize projects for implementation.
  3. Attendees will learn Basic Design, Landscape Architectural and Project Management tools & techniques which will assist them in applying sustainability criteria and guidelines for New Trail Design & Trail Rehabilitation on the ground.
  4. Attendees will be able to understand the relationship between New Trail Design methods and Guidelines for Sustainability Assessment / Planning / Design / Implementation / Ecological Restoration / Maintenance, Rehabilitation & Armor Spectrum.
  5. Attendees will learn to develop recommendations for the Optimum Mountain Trail Corridor location and compare that to the Existing Mountain Trail Corridor location and to prioritize segments for Implementation.
  6. “The Challenge is … to be Patient!” Attendees will learn the implications of their incremental decisions to their effect on the environment and Project Life Cycle cost and encouraged to craft strategies that reflect their Mountain Trail Sustainability Ethic.
