    Trailbuilding How-To Video (IMBA/USFS)

    For those who haven't been able to attend an IMBA trailbuilding workshop, here's a starter that will give you some of the basic info you'll need. I've had this video for some time, but have come to realize that very few people have ever seen it. I've been told that the videos were made to share, so I'm sharing...

    I highly recommend watching all the videos in order, as the principles outlined in the early chapters are referred to throughout the rest. More than that, I'd recommend doing the IMBA workshop, or working with experienced trailbuilders and learning by doing it.

    The original DVD was about 40 minutes long, but for Youtube I've split it up into it's Intro plus Eight chapters.




    Watch All Videos Continuously


    Watch Individual Chapters (embedded below):

    Also the Trail Construction and Maintenance Notebook can be useful sometimes.
