OTG Trail Skills Training Day: A Partnership
UPDATE: This training was cancelled by VOC. We will keep you updated when it is rescheduled.
Ouray Trail Group is working in partnership with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado and the USFS to offer an opportunity for OTG volunteers to sharpen their skills and learn new solutions and techniques for hiking trail maintenance and repair.
The U.S. Forest Service has funded and arranged the 1-day training, on Saturday, June 20, 2020, for OTG volunteers to develop and refine trail maintenance skills. The training will be taught by trail professionals from Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC), a Denver-based nonprofit that provides training and volunteer opportunities to support public land trails and ecological restoration. The training will include a morning classroom session in Ouray, and afternoon hands-on trail work on a Ouray-area hiking trail. The course will focus on understanding how trails are designed and managed, how to recognize trail maintenance issues and judge their importance, and how to maintain and repair trails emphasizing tread surface drainage, erosion, and stabilization. Time, location, and other details will be announced soon. All are welcome!
