    Webinar Outline


    This is an update to the February 2018 “Trail Construction Cost Realities.” Budgeting and cost estimating critical elements of a trail project’s success. Understanding the factors associated with trail construction cost estimates is essential for accurate cost estimating. As a prelude to our “Return on Investment for Parks and Trails: Economics and Beyond” webinar, this webinar will provide a foundation to assist with trail construction cost estimating. Key factors associated with trail construction costs will be discussed and an estimating tool will be made available to webinar participants. The methodology presented in the webinar applies to ALL trail construction projects, though most examples included will be natural surface trail projects. This webinar is appropriate for recreation planners, land managers, trail advocates, policy makers, designers, and architects. Trail service providers are also welcome.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the basic factors associated with trail construction cost estimates.
    • Identify the risks and uncertainties in cost estimating.
    • Learn one methodology for systematically categorizing trail construction cost elements.
