    Bricks For Armoring?
    I am looking for anyone with any experiance using red building bricks as armoring material.

    Our club has not had to do much armoring at our local trail but a new project will need it in a few areas. We don't have any native rock in enough quantity to do this but I have a supply of old red brick that I can use if it is feasible.

    Any thoughts or advise?

    Brick definitely can be used. For deeper holes I would do the "stone pitching" method. Check out the section on "Appalacian Armoring" in the IMBA Trail Solutions book. This specifically addresses areas that don't have much native stone to work with.
