IMBA Resources: Trail Building and Maintenance: Construction Guidelines for Wooden Technical Trail Features


IMBA Resources: Trail Building and Maintenance: Construction Guidelines for Wooden Technical Trail Features: "Construction Guidelines for Wooden Technical Trail Features
Before You Start

* Make sure to get permission from your local land manager before starting any trailwork.
* All wooden technical trail features (TTF) should be carefully planned. Create a schematic design that shows the trail and all elements of the TTF including scale, location, dimensions, materials, fasteners, filters, fall zones, signs and optional lines. Get approval of the plan before beginning construction.
* All wooden features should be designed and constructed with the assistance of an experienced carpenter.
* The TTF should generally follow best management practices for exterior deck, staircase and/or pedestrian bridge design, construction and maintenance."
