    New US Forest Service book on trail construction

    and it is free!
    I am told it is the companion to last years DVD on mountain bike trail construction.

    http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/...s/trailpub.htm

    this may be old news, but I had not seen this before. thank to IMBA for bringing it to my attention.

    I've got it. Not bad at all for free, but it certainly isn't the IMBA book.

    I'm hoping for some general info to see if it's something I might be interested in doing on the local hunting club lands.

    I've got it too. Not IMBA, but for free, it highlights many of the same principals. Its certainly worth the time it takes to fill out the order form!
    Just a regular guy.

    If you had the book and the video in your hands, you'd have the general info you need to build trails. I would recommend getting the IMBA book too, but the forest service book and video are worth having.

    It's on it's way, so we'll see how it goes. I have 9 acres of woods/jungle of my own, I can start around the house for practice. Seems like something I can get my boys (8 and 11 yrs old) involved in.
