TrailWare 2.0 is a software program for efficiently managing trail data collected through the Universal Trail Assessment Process (UTAP). TrailWare makes storing and analyzing data easier, allows for creating trail characteristic reports (e.g. grade, cross slope, width, obstructions, and surface) for management purposes, and Trail Access Information reports suitable for distribution to trail users. The course will provide hands-on instruction on using TrailWare effectively for trail data management.

Participants will learn how to enter data, perform data analysis, and create and use reports. Registration fee includes course materials and a 120-day trial version of TrailWare 2.0 Software.

NOTE: Participants should bring a portable computer to the course that is ready for the installation of TrailWare (Windows 98 or newer; 32 MB RAM; CD-ROM drive). Participants must have appropriate AUTHORIZATION passwords to load software onto the computer; many Windows 2000 and XP operating platforms restrict permission for loading software. Contact Beneficial Designs at for more information about computer requirements.
