  • Time: 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The Universal Trail Assessment Process is an inventory process that provides objective information about trail conditions (e.g. grade, cross slope, width). The information obtained through an assessment can be used by land managers to enhance the safety and enjoyment for trail users (by providing accurate, objective information about trail conditions). The information obtained can also be used in monitoring environmental impacts on the trail, preparing budgets, developing maintenance and construction plans, and indentifying potential access barriers.

The two-day workshop combines classroom and practical, hands-on trail assessment experience to ensure that participants have the skills and confidence to conduct assessments.
