AERC Trail Master Class ($225/limited to 16 students) will be held June 21-24, 2014, in Duluth, Minnesota. Must be an AERC member in good standing for at least one year. Contact Candy Barbo for more information 218 349-9606 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
AERC sponsors Trail Master classes across the U.S. In addition to teaching endurance riders the proper way to design and build new trails -- and maintain and improve existing trails -- we invite two land managers to attend the class with riders. Mornings are spent in the classroom. A written test follows at lunch, and afternoons are set aside for field work and getting one's hands dirty.
Those who graduate from the four-day course are certified crew leaders, and can go anyplace to lead crews in the proper way to maintain, build and design trails. By working together with our land managers we can build sustainable trails for the future.
