One of the most challenging elements of trail planning is budgeting. Understanding the factors associated with trail construction cost estimates will help a wide spectrum of trail community members. This workshop will deliver a simple, cost estimating tool and provide a list of the key factors associated with trail construction costs. Issues such as the true costs, risks, and opportunities of volunteer labor; overhead costs such as equipment maintenance; and comparisons of hand-built and machine-built construction methods will be covered.
This workshop is appropriate for recreation planners, land managers, trail advocates, policy makers, designers, and architects. Trail service providers are also welcome.
