AMC's Complete Guide to Trail Building and Maintenance

Anyone can learn to build and maintain safe, durable, and environmentally-sound hiking trails with the right teacher. This authoritative guide is based on AMC's 130 years of experience in building and maintaining 1,700 miles of trails from Maine to Washington, D.C. Now in it's fourth edition, this newly revised guide provides readers with expanded information of new trail construction-including planning, obtaining funding, trail layout, and design-as well as a new chapter on information kiosks. Trail maintainers, land trusts, outing clubs, and public agencies will find this guide to be an essential reference for maintaining recreational hiking and cross-country ski trails.
