Basic Trail Development and Sustainability

Course Description

This is the start of a very robust Trail Development and Sustainability program that has been developed in conjunction with the US Forest Service, Camp Greer, G5 Trail Collective and many other stakeholders. With over 74,000 acres of Pisgah National Forests and 75% of undeveloped land in McDowell County, McDowell Tech aims to be the premier trail development program. We look forward to serving those who wish to remain a novice or those making a career in trail development.
